Spiders are related to scorpions, mites and harvestmen (daddy long-legs).

Some people are afraid of spiders. They might have heard stories about the dangerous Black Widow spider. Don't worry - most spiders are harmless!

Spiders all have eight legs. Most of them have eight eyes as well. Some spiders only have six eyes or less.

Spiders like to live in buildings. They hide in corners or under the floorboards. They eat smaller insects, like flies. Most spiders will spin a web to catch the insects.
