This massive spider web in Madagascar was woven by Darwin’s bark spider, a recently-discovered arachnid that uses its incredibly-strong silk, ten times tougher than Kevlar, to make the world’s largest webs. These spiders are known to make orb webs in Andasibe-Mantadia National Park up to 2.8 meters square anchored by 25-meter threads.

More pics here, including a photo of the Darwin’s bark spider you’ll wish you’d never seen.
