These postures, and several others, help stranded spiders stay alive, the researchers said.
And that's a very good thing, not just for the spider, but for the entire ecosystem that the spider inhabits, according to Hayashi, who said that many of the species that exhibit these water-dancing behaviors play an important role as predators in their respective environments.
