But to reach this leafy fare, the spider has to evade the attention of ants, which live in the hollow spines of the tree.
"But when they get hungry, the spiders head to the newer leaves, and get ready to run the ant gauntlet. And they wait for an opening - they watch the ants move around, and they watch to see that there are not any ants in the local area that they are going after."
"And then they zip in and grab one of these Beltian bodies and then clip it off, hold it in their mouths and run away. "
