Tangle-web spiders are eight-legged engineers, crafting silk pulleys to snag oversized prey like lizards or even small mammals walking on the ground below. Until now, scientists didn't know exactly how the arachnids were able to capture such hefty victims. For the first time, researchers analyzed the spiders' building techniques and silk construction for trapping and lifting heavy animals. Turns out, the spiders actively "tuned" their silk mechanisms once the prey was caught, attaching pre-stretched threads in pulleys to maximize their lifting power and elevate prey much heavier than the arachnids themselves, the researchers reported in a new study.

Scrapy - Spiders
Another Life: The sun is taking longer to clear the hill these mornings, having first to scorch its way through the candyfloss cloud at its summit, writes Michael Viney. But then it gets the chance to scintillate, searching out the randy gleam in the eyes of rams in the rushes not long now, lads and the glitter of spider webs along the fence. I try not to think about spiders for most of the year, being in general an arachnophobe, but October reminds me how well they do what they do. I love being beside the lake and watching spider-bearing strands of gossamer glinting in mid-air against the darkness of the cliff gossamer from "goose summer", full of gently drifting goose-down, thus anticipating this balmy, globally-warmed autumn. One of the few photographs I can stand to look at in the glossy Hamlyn Guide to Spiders is of a little Pardosa about to be snatched off its feet by a strand of silk: this "ballooning" is how many kinds of spiderlings disperse.
Spiders are classes which define how a certain site or a group of sites will be scraped, including how to perform the crawl i. In other words, Spiders are the place where you define the custom behaviour for crawling and parsing pages for a particular site or, in some cases, a group of sites. You start by generating the initial Requests to crawl the first URLs, and specify a callback function to be called with the response downloaded from those requests. In the callback function, you parse the response web page and return item objects , Request objects, or an iterable of these objects. Those Requests will also contain a callback maybe the same and will then be downloaded by Scrapy and then their response handled by the specified callback.
