Spider silk glands

The 'business end' of the spider.

I hope we don’t have any arachnophobes in the audience today, because this TED Talk is all about spider silk.

Did you know there is something like 40,000 different species of spider? How about the number of different types of silk, or that a single spider can produce a whole range of different silks for different purposes? All this and more in this fascinating talk by Cheryl Hayashi.
