We don't have this species in our files! I'm going to learn how to add it.

Wow, nice find. haven’t seen one of these in decades. A really facinating orb weaver called a ‘Bolas spider’. They have a wildly different technique for catching insects.

Yay! It is very easy to add a species to the site. Itsy had the admin do it, I figured it might still be difficult.
