About

Published on May 26, 2018

Long-jawed Orb-weaver Spiders, sometimes called Common Stretch Spiders spin an orb web to catch their prey. They're usually found in vegetation close to ground level and frequently close to water. The elongated body can vary in colour from creamy-yellow to green or pale brown. The legs are a yellow-brown colour.
