What Is A Spider?

These arthropods have eight legs. Depending on the species, they may have six or eight eyes. Spiders can extrude silk from their bellies. They can use the silk to build webs and trap prey. Spiders will eat various insects and other spiders. Some of the largest species have been known to consume lizards and birds.
Some spider species are social. The social species will build communal webs and live together with many other spiders. In some cases, as many as 50,000 spiders can live together. Under normal circumstances, spiders will survive two years but they can live up to 25 years when living in protected habitats. Females spiders are bigger than male spiders when they read adulthood.
