Compared to other spiders, the Bolas spider has a rather weird way of catching food. The Bolas spider does not use a web to catch its prey. Instead, it spins a long line of silk with a small drop of sticky silk at the end. When it sees its prey, the spider swings the line of silk at the insect.
As most spiders do, the Bolas spider lays a large sack full of millions of tiny eggs. Very few eggs survive. The eggs that do survive, find something to eat as soon as they hatch, and float away on a gust of wind to begin a new life!
