All You Need To Know
Free teacher/parent/student resources for All Ages
There are hundreds of species of spiders in the world. These small animals can appear to us
sometimes as a construction engineer capable of performing calculations for building its nest,
sometimes as an interior designer making complicated plans, sometimes a chemist making
incredibly strong and flexible threads,deadly venoms, and dissolving acids, and sometimes as a
hunter using the most cunning tactics.

Most people think of the spider as an animal that just uses a web to catch its prey. But this by no
means tells the whole story, because these webs, each one a wonder of architecture and
engineering, are not the only means by which spiders catch their prey.  Besides spinning webs,
spiders employ some surprising tactics when hunting.
