The orb web spiders, or orb-weaver spiders, are a large group of spiders that build wheel-shaped webs to trap their prey. They are found worldwide and many species are very large, long-legged and brightly-coloured. With over 3000 species in over 170 genera, Araneidae is the world's third-largest family of spiders.
