What kind of an enormous spider made this cobweb? And you’ve got to believe we have some huge arachnids here in South Africa. The Baboon spider for one; massive, grey and hairy, but relatively harmless to humans; unless you die of a heart attack when you meet one! See Incy Wincy Spider for more exciting details on SA spiders.
But judging by the thickness of the strands, this cobweb looks more like something Spider-man would leave behind.
Or does it?
Gotcha! It is hair from Mr Spaghetti Legs! When I groom him, tufts of hair often float away before I can catch them. And one such ended up here, on the dead branch of a plant in a pot on my stoep.
But you can be certain I made very sure this was hair and not web, with a spider potentially lurking nearby, before I got close enough to take a photo.
