TRUTH !!
Spiders build webs from the edge toward the center, laying down a spiral of sticky threads produced by six glands located beneath the abdomen. Spider silk is made of protein that hardens after it is squirted out of the glands.
Most web segments are made up of several strands of silk whose strength is sometimes greater than steel of the same gauge.
