The eight-legged creatures, spiders, are hidden in every corner. But the easiest and convenient way to find them is on a handrail. Do you take any notice of their presence?

In this sharing, Dickson will show you the commonly seen spiders or even their preys living in your neighbourhod. And give you some tips and hints on how to find them and take photos/ videos of these tiny creatures. They are indeed one of the most important and diverse group in the ecosystem. Let's learn about their unusual and interesting behavior.
