Depends on your spelling. The Lamborghini Huracán Spyder with the roaring V-10 engine? Oh, yes. Very. The Golden Orb-Weaver, otherwise known as the Hurricane Spider? Hardly. Which might sound odd for the oldest spider in the world that looks like something out of a Legend of Zelda video game, but there you have it.

Golden Orb Weaver

That’s not to say the spider isn’t venomous, however. A bite will cause you mild discomfort and there will be redness, blisters, and pain around the bite area, which will usually last for about a day. But the chances of being attacked by a hurricane spider are low. Although accidentally walking into their web will certainly put you in the running for a heart attack. Their webs are very clearly built by a master, as you’d imagine for a spider that is more than 165 million years old.

The Hurricane Spider likes to build her webs up high in trees, but such is their engineering prowess, they’ve been known to build golden webs made of yellow silk that can span the width of a narrow road, and are so strong, small birds have been found trapped in them. This web-weaving excellence comes down to their legs, which are striped and specialized for weaving, with tips that point inwards instead of outwards, as is common with most other spider species.

The terrifying-looking versions of the Hurricane Spider are usually the females, which can grow up to 5 inches in length and have a white abdomen and reddish to greenish-red thorax. The males bear the same markings, but are usually two thirds the size of the females. These scary markings aren’t for us to be scared of, though. They are far warding off potential predators looking for an easy snack.
