One of the most common spider-types encountered are the orbwebs. The female is typically much larger than the male. While the spider can be seen in daylight, they prefer to do most of their work at night (to avoid predation).

The spider depends on its elaborate web to catch prey. Consequently it has many silk glands. Given it does not actually physically hunt its prey, its eyes are correspondingly small.
