Meta menardithe European cave spideris a long-jawed orb-weaving spider family Tetragnathidae. They have a natural range extending from Scandinavia to North Africa and from Europe to Korea ; there are also transplanted populations as far apart as Japan and Madagascar. The adult spiders are photophobic and live in places free from light, frequently in caves and tunnelsthough they can sometimes be seen outside of caves and mines as they will emerge around dusk to hunt, Cyberdyne - Xplasm - Spider Cave using a single silk lasso line and swinging down upon their prey.
They are often found in areas that are frequented by bats. The spiders are most often observed in railway tunnels and mines since these are more likely to be visited by humans. The young spiders are, after several instars and in contrast to the adultsstrongly attracted to light  —probably an evolutionary adaptation which ensures the spread of the species to new areas see Life cycle for further details.
However, the giant house spidercardinal spider and the raft spider are larger. It is widespread and locally abundantalthough rarely noticed due to its habits.
They are neither endangered nor protected  in the UK. Meta menardi closely resembles Meta bournetiwhich sports a fainter mark on its abdomen and no rings on its legs.
The ecology of the two species is very similar. On the other hand, the two species seems to exhibit different tolerance to the microclimatic variations within the cave, which emerged as the main factors determining the differentiation of their niche. Cave spiders feed on smaller invertebratesmost frequently myriapods and slugs. The European cave spider is not dangerous to humans and although in common with nearly all spiders they have venom, its Cyberdyne - Xplasm - Spider Cave on large mammals is negligible.
They are unlikely to bite if Cyberdyne - Xplasm - Spider Cave handled but if sufficiently provoked they are capable of inflicting an unpleasant "nip". They are non-aggressive and generally slow moving and are regarded by arachnophiles as "gentle giants".
After mating, females produce a drop-shaped Egg sac cocoon. Egg sacs are usually laid in the vicinity Cyberdyne - Xplasm - Spider Cave the cave entrance, where the air flow velocity ranges between 0. After hatching, the spiderlings remain in the cocoon until the first molt, feeding on the yolk. They leave the cocoon in spring, move towards the cave entrance and disperse via ballooning outside the cave.
A media frenzy was caused when British Telecom engineers working in the grounds of Windsor Castle discovered a colony living in conduits and manholes.
