Ecology and Behavioral changes in spider Argiope anasuja (female)

S. S. Kulkarni and V. Y. Deshpande

The Giant cross spider Argiope anasuja Thorell 1887 is amongst the poorly studied spiders. Being dominant in the study area of Khandala Tahsil, its ecological and behavioral study was carried out. Three specimens of it were kept under observation from Sept to Nov 2010 with 36 hours of continued direct observation. Investigation for sight-selection, web-constructing strategies and prey-selection was carried out. Also, direct observations were made for the predating practices, behavioral changes with weather changes, along with diurnal activities and many amazing facts have been revealed.
