This is a Good Place For Spiders....

... but not quite paradise. Below is a picture of your island.

This is a good place for spiders, but it could be even better. Your spiders share their island with a colony of seabirds, which is very good. Dr. Polis found eight times more spiders on islands with bird colonies. Your island is small and, thus, has a lot of shoreline per square meter of island. However, the currents off your island are still, and don't bring a lot of food from the sea.

Click on your island above to explore the islands in the Gulf of California with Dr. Polis, or try to describe a spider paradise island again.
