This is Not a Good Place For Spiders

Below is a picture of your island.

Although beautiful to us, this is not a good place for spiders. Dr. Polis found eight times more spiders on islands with bird colonies, but this island is free of bird nests. Your island is also large and, thus, has a lot of shoreline per square meter of island. Also, the currents off your island are still and don't bring a lot of food from the sea.
