Turns out some hummingbird species might not survive without the benefit of plentiful spiders in their habitat.The hummingbirds use the strong flexible webs to hold their nests together. Without spiders in the exhibit, the nests were falling apart, and eggs were unable to to hatch. So the volunteers were told to quit cleaning quite so much in the hummingbird exhibit, lol.Sure enough, once there were more flourishing spiders, the nests held together, the eggs, came to fruition, and baby hummingbirds came to be.
But sure, go ahead and believe we aren’t all connected on this planet. Go ahead.
