Not entirely true.. but close enough. It's actually used for both. It'd be like decorating your house to make an alarm for dinner time. It's basically an early warning system. Since tarantulas are pretty much blind regardless of their numerous eyes, they rely solely on vibration to sense movement. The webs make it easier for them to pick up on any incoming predators, and prey.

BTW, Tamika.. who are you and where did you come from. Can't say I've ever seen that avatar around here. PRETTY sure I'd remember!
