Lunar Spider / Lunar Silk

Lunar Spider
Image
Developed by Woe
Price: A mating pair is affordable to tier 7+ All others must pay around 4 wp to procure a pair.
Habitat: Forested areas, where a web may easily be woven. They seem to have a strong preference for willow trees and large, solitary trees.
Lifespan and Development: A mating pair can live for decades. Mosts Lunar Spiders born are male, however they are swiftly eaten by the larger female, until she has had her fill and reaches 'courtship' age. Here, she tests the remaining males in a brood, and will often systematically eat the ones that fail to impress her with their web-weaving skills. Particularly large broods are marked by great glowing webs, spreading from bough to bough in a tree, illuminating it in the moonlight. Due to the ratio of male to female (500:1) the breeding of such specimens takes great skill in either husbandry or agriculture, or else some other advantage in order to procure an ideal mating pair.

Their mating seasons often occur twice a season, with the exception of Saun, during which they are largely dormant. They are most prolific during Cylus, through which they mate every other day, the female bearing many egg sacs which she deposits far from its lair or main web.

Diet: Food is one issue that Lunar spiders rarely have to worry about. Their glowing webs often attract an abundance of insects, which get caught easily in the web. They subsist on insects mainly, but have been known to devour smaller rodents and birds as well if they're lucky.
Temperament: Docile toward anything that's larger than their typical prey. They rarely bite humans, and when they do the poison is mostly harmless. Just causing slight pain, irritation and swelling.
Abilities: They weave marvelous silken webs that are capable of being harvested. The yield of a singular mating pair will amount to one bolt of lunar silk per season if their webs aren't aggressively culled. One bolt a season is a good model for sustainability. They do not produce any silk during Saun, and produce four times the silk during the season of Cylus.
Weaknesses: They glow, and are easy to spot. Otherwise, as vulnerable as many other large spiders.

I love this idea - very much approved. I'm leaving the thread open, though, as your silk image isn't working - could you check / amend please? Thank you so much!
