National Geographic's Webs of Intrigue (1997)
Enter the world of an ancient creature that has become an expert weaver, a consummate hunter, and with more than 30,000 faces - a master of adaptation. Over millions of years spiders have developed numerous methods of capturing prey and spinning a common orb web is just one of them. In this Emmy Award-winning program, you'll witness these expert weavers and hunters in action! Meet the giant Nephila spider whose enormous web can trap small birds; the Dolomedes spider that plunges underwater to fish out a meal; and the ogre-faced spider that ambushes and traps its victims in a silken net stretched between its legs. And watch a male St. Andrews cross spider risk life and limb to court a hungry mate. Your curiosity about weavers of wonders is sure to be ensnared by WEBS OF INTRIGUE.
