This article has been retracted: please see Elsevier Policy on Article Withdrawal (https://www.elsevier.com/about/our-business/policies/article-withdrawal). This article has been retracted at the request of the authors L.G. and V.S. It has come to the authors' attention that the data on spider boldness reported in this paper appear to contain irregularities in the form of an excess of duplicated values. These duplicated values even span across time points. For example, the boldness value 63.21 s occurs in both boldness 1, 2 and 3 which were assayed at different times. Furthermore, extensive overlap has been found between this data and that from a different article published the same year: 74.3% of the boldness values are identical to those found in the other publication even though different spiders were assayed. On this basis, the authors L.G. and V.S. have lost faith in the reliability of the data and they wish to retract the paper. Author J.N.P. does not agree to the retraction.
