Star spider

An almost perfect star

Today as I opened the patio door I just happened to see this extraordinary spider on the wall.

I wonder if it always lays its legs out  in a star.

I also wonder why some legs are shorter than others. Do they break off? Or wear down? Does it nibble them when it gets nervous? Or was it just born assymetrical?
