Daintree Rainforest Spiders

Daintree Rainforest is habitat to giant Golden Orb-weavers, Brush-footed Trapdoors, Ant-mimicking Spiders, Bird-dung Crab Spiders and an amazing diversity of other arachnids, as listed (below).  Because of the web requirements that penalise key-words exceeding 2.5% of a page’s word content and the convention of naming so many spiders with the word spider incorporated, SPDR will substitute to avoid over-use.
