Silk & Venom
Silk & Venom
In Silk & Venom, James O’Hanlon takes us from his backyard to all corners of the globe (and even outer space!) to explore these fascinating creatures and show us why they’re not so scary after all.
You’ll encounter everything from miniscule jumping spiders with super intelligence to giant tarantulas whose venom could one day save your life, as well as the people who seek them, including the unlikely Australian who stumbled upon a beautiful but elusive new species of peacock spider, which sparked an international collaboration.
Clearing up spider myths and misconceptions, James O’Hanlon introduces readers to the beauty of their lives, including remarkable hunting techniques, the fascinating engineering of spider silk and the spiders that live in extremes — from underwater to the slopes of Mount Everest.
