Description

Several spiders use their webs to fly. Called ‘ballooning’, they first climb to a high point such as a tree branch. They then point their backsides in the air, squirt out a long line of silk and let nature do the rest. Given a strong wind, ballooning spiders have been known to travel huge distances.

It is said the Himalayan jumping spider has been found at altitudes as high as 6700 meters above sea level. Its only source of food at these extreme heights is stray insects that are blown up the mountainside by the wind. :-)
