Spiders

Wolf spider adultSpiders are an important group of predators. Spiders are not insects – they are in the order Araneae. They differ from insects in having eight walking legs and only two body regions. The first region is called the prosoma. This region contains the eyes, fangs and legs. The second region is the abdomen, which has spinnerets at its base that produce silk.
