SPIDERS!!!
There are around 900 different species of the Camel Spider
alone. There are about 50 found in the Southern U.S. and about 240 in Africa. The fear of spiders is called Arachnophobia. The nursery rhyme Little Miss Muffet is actually a true story! She was the daughter of Dr. Mouffet, who believed that eating spiders healed you. The weight of insects eaten every year by spiders is
greater than the weight of the entire human population. The silk that a spider makes is about twice
as strong as steel and is believed to be the strongest material in the world. Scientists haven'tever been able to

sometimes deadly if left untreated Camel Spiders DID YOU KNOW? All Spiders are Arachnids, but not all Arachnids
are Spiders. This group includes Scorpions, Ticks,

as big as a dinner plate. It's called a birdeater because it snatches
Birds from their nests and eats them. Spiders belong to the Phylum
Arthropoda. Arthropoda includes Crabs, Shrimp, Crayfish, Barnacles,
Spiders, Scorpions, Ticks, Insects, and several other animlas. The smallest spider in the
world is the Mygalomorph.
