Madagascar is amazing.
"The webs of Darwin’s Bark Spider have been found spanning rivers, streams and lakes. In one instance, a web stretched 82 feet across a Madagascar river with at least 30 insects trapped in it. In addition to the size of the webs, the silk spun by these spiders is more than two times stronger than any other known spider silk and reportedly 10 times stronger than a similarly sized piece of Kevlar.”
