of spiders, found in a multitude of habitats. They eat insects and other small animals, using paralyzing
venom in the attack. There are only a few species of spider which have venom that is threatening to
humans. Many spiders live on the ground and in foliage waiting for their pray, while others spin webs
to catch unsuspecting prey. This sticky silk used in the construction of webs is released from the
spinnerets. In general female spiders are larger than males and are more commonly seen. Some female
species of spiders kill their male counterpart after mating!
