So, im sure youve had this a hundred times, but im not really a true spider guy, however, i was just wondering if anyone knew the latin (or even a common) name for the famous spider that almost instantly makes a web to wrap its prey in, rather than the normal strike..
Any ideas?

Does anyone know if these are available in the European market?
