Oldest spider web
The oldest spider web ever preserved comes from a 110-million-year-old chunk of amber from San Just, Spain. This incredible fossil holds 26 gossamer threads of spider silk and three unfortunate spider victims. Trapped in the strands are a mite, a small fly and a wasp. The spider creator of the web wasn't preserved, but paleontologists suspect it may have been something like today's orb web spiders, which weave webs in the classic circular shape.
