Possible new species of spider builds decoy spiders

They're starting to let their intelligence show. Next they'll start writing words in their webs, telling us about how delicious the pig, sleeping in the stall below, will be once turned into bacon.

Bah, pesky "scientists" always trying to assign rational reasons for buggy behavior...

It's obvious the spiders are building monuments to, wards against, and possibly puppet plays about, their dread "God Spider King, of the darkest Jungle!" ... "Jungle...", "Jungle..."
