What did you dream when you ate a spider while sleeping?
That her web could be regurgitated & collected each morning - clean & sticky. Did you know that Helmeted Honeyeaters need spider webs to bind their nests together & ensure the chicks don't fall out? Each day over the breeding season spider webs are collected for the captive breeding programs birds.
