Incredibly, Spiders are built with a hydraulic system of compressed-fluids that enable them to move their limbs in creating magnificent webs. This amazing ability has inspired scientists and engineers in their endeavors. Spiders have a great design sense and can help awaken our creative spirit through their wide array of intricately woven webs.
