The Sensory Powers of Spiders

01 Nov 16

A current research has revealed that spider can organise the worry and rigidity of their webs. According to the study, spider manages the process by using their sensory powers. Oxford University’s scientists have discovered that spiders use their sensory powers to position and spot prey as well as partners. While explaining the process the scientists added that spider silk transmits vibrations in different frequencies, sending information back to the spider. The analysts have compared the process to a guitar.

 Researcher Beth Mortimer said that the spiders use vibrations not only from prey which is caught in their web. Furthermore, it is important for spiders to know about their prey’s location.  Along with locating prey, vibration also helps the female to locate their suitable partner.Through vibration, male-spiders generate a unique music that attracts female spiders. The researchers also added that the spiders also utilise the information to review the condition of their web. The scientists said that the spiders have a different mechanism that allows them to control the sensory information.
