Notes Giant spiders are huge predatory arachnids; the largest variety of eight-legged web-spinners. Greater Spiders are 8'-16' in diameter. Greater Spiders hunt and live in groups of about 1-10 individuals and live almost exclusively in dark forests where they can spin their webs in the trees.All Great Spiders feed on flesh and blood. They can be encountered in almost every clime. The origin of these creatures is certainly not a natural one. Despite their sizes, all types of creatures are related, the smaller versions probably being some sort of evil spawn of the Major Great Spiders, a bane upon the earth if there ever was one. Groups build their traps along commonly used tracks or trails, leaving an opening for their wandering prey. As the unwary traveler enters the insidious silk canyon, the spiders close off the approach. Then, the spiders close on their victim, injecting a Poison. This breaks the victim’s innards down into a savory jelly that the spider simply sucks out of the imprisoned body.
