This is why I’m never setting foot in Madagascar. The island contains a small spider—nothing remarkable to look at. The spider spins webs that span entire lakes. Those webs are stronger than any other form of spider silk.
Don't be surprised if you see the US Army sporting fine garments made from Madagascan bark spider's silk in the future. It's "10 times better than Kevlar," which itself is "5 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis."
