Transcript of Arachnid (Spiders) Prezi

SPIDERS Basic Spider Facts: - They only have 8 legs and sometimes they may have less. - They have two body segments instead of three. - They have eight simple eyes instead of two compound eyes. - They have no antennae. - They never have wings. - They are never herbivores, only carnivores. - Spider's are in the classification called Arachnids. - The name Arachnid comes from the Greek myth of Arachne, who was a mortal who could spin and weave beautifully. And because she thought she was the best weaver, she challenged the Goddess Athene (who was disguised as a old woman) to a spinning contest, and Athene was so angry that she lost, she turned Arachne into a spider, so she could do nothing but spin for the rest of her days. - There are about 34,000 different arachnid species around the world. -Male spiders are usually smaller then the female spiders.
