It’s the toughest natural fiber known to man… stronger than steel. And this little spider can make a bridge out of it.

Some people love spiders. Many hate them. But even their greatest critics have to admit they are amazing.

This little beastie is the size of a fingernail. And it can make a bridge across a river 80′ long.

Even scientists can’t figure out how such a little critter is able to pull that trick off.

The fact that the bridge it makes is stronger than steel makes it even more amazing.

The trick it used to deal with another spider poaching the bridge was pretty slick, too.
