The formidable ferocity of a funnel fiend found
When I wander about in nature I often see funnel webs close to the ground, but only occasionally is the web builder in evidence. July 29th on a sumpy piece of the Blackland Prairie in northeast Austin was one of those times.
Funnel weavers are in the Agelenidae, but I can’t tell you what the genus of this spider is (perhaps Agelenopsis).
