In addition to bottles, boomerangs and bombs aplenty, Hyrule also hides 100 gold spider/skull hybrids for Link to collect. Each one you obtain goes towards a reward back at the House of Skulltula in Kakariko Village. The gifts are nice, but if you need a more magnanimous reason to hunt these things down, each one helps lift a curse laid upon a horrifically disfigured family.
Collect 10: Adult Wallet (Link can carry 200 Rupees)
Collect 20: Stone/Shard of Agony (Rumbles/Lights up when secrets are near)
Collect 30: Giant Wallet (Link can carry 500 Rupees)
Collect 40: 10 Bombchus
Collect 50: A piece of heart
Collect 100: 200 Rupees
Gold Skulltulas can only be found at night, underground or inside dungeons. Some can only be found as young or adult Link. If their token is too far to retrieve, use the Boomerang (as a child) or Hookshot (as an adult) to bring the item to you. Keep this in mind while searching!
Above: You’re looking for this thing. Listen for their telltale scurrying noise!
