Springin' Spiders is the fourth stage of the Kremwood Forest world and the tenth stage overall in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System version of the game Donkey Kong Country 3, as well as the first stage of the same world and the seventh stage overall in the Game Boy Advance version of the same game, and the stage is swapped with Barrel Shield Bust-Up in this version. In the SNES game version, it is preceded by Squeals on Wheels and followed by Bobbing Barrel Brawl. In the GBA game version, it is preceded by Belcha's Barn and followed by Riverside Race.


Springin' Spiders is a rather athletical stage, taking place inside hollow trees. The stage introduces Nids, spider enemies under planks, which jump and carry the primates to reach high heights. These enemies are immune against all attacks but harmless to the Kongs, and they can even make the primates drop barrels upon contact in the SNES version of the game. The yellow type of Nid jumps constantly, and the pink one only jumps when the heroes are sitting on its plank. Other enemies include green and red Buzzes, Sneek, Bristles, Knik-Knak and Swoopy. Sometimes, a Buzz may be blocking collectables, so the player usually has to throw a barrel in order to defeat the enemy and safely obtain the item.

Near the beginning of the stage, an Animal Barrel of Squawks the Parrot can be found and used to turn the Kongs into the Animal Buddy.
