Family: Uloboridae

Uloboridae Spider (the cribellate orb weavers or hackled orb weavers) kill their prey by crushing with over 140 metres of thread instead of venom because they have no venom.

All members of this family produce a feathery, fuzzy silk called cribellate (or hackled) silk. These spiders do not use an adhesive on their orb webs, but rather the very fine fibers on each strand of silk tend to ensnare prey. Uloboridae webs often have a stabilimentum or zig-zag pattern through the center.
