Spiders, have eight legs and some have powerful venom. There are at least 30.000 known types of spiders but only a few are dangerous to humans because their venom is injected in tiny doses. The hairs on their legs sense movement to detect prey. They hold their prey with their feelers (pedipalps) and bite with their fangs. The fangs inject the venom.
Did you know there is a spitting spider which lives throughout the world? The spitting spider catches its prey by shooting two streams of sticky gum from its jaws. It all happens in a split second when the spider moves its head rapidly from side to side. The sticky gum traps the insect in zigzag lines. What a way to catch your dinner!
Spiders build webs in all sizes and all different shapes. A Trapdoor spider builds a funnel and tubes from which it pounces on its prey. The Black Widow spider builds a web with elaborate traps. Webs are made of silk produced by a gland in the spider's abdomen.
Spiders should not be regarded as deadly, venomous creatures and certainly deserve to be left alone as much as possible. They have a right to life as much as anybody or any other creature in this world. Observe a spider and discover its beauty and the challenges it encounters to survive each day.
