Spiders are members of the class Arachnids, which includes over 50,000 species. They inhabit almost every corner of our planet—from swampy jungles to desert areas. Some spider species prefer warm and humid climates, while others easily adapt to harsh and cold environments.
The most well-known aspect of spider life is their incredible ability to spin webs. Webs serve as traps for capturing prey and also for locomotion. Different spider species create various types of web structures, from simple circles to intricate triangles and spirals. These webs can be not only beautiful but also part of a complex communication system among spiders.
Spiders are also known for their diversity in shapes and sizes. They can be tiny or huge, capable of intimidating anyone with their impressive appearance. Most spiders have eight legs and eight eyes, which help them catch prey and navigate their surroundings.
