Given name : Spider
Physical characteristics : Spiders have eight legs and their bodies are split into two parts; the abdomen and cephalothoraxes ( head and thorax fused together )
Behaviour : There is a small area at the extremity of the abdomen that is used to secrete silk that the spider uses to weave it's web. It also uses it to trap it's prey, to transport itself as well protect it's eggs.
Diet : The spider is limited to a liquid only diet. After having caught it's prey it sucks it's blood and infuses it with saliva containing digestive enzymes. These enzymes transform the prey into a soup type liquid that is consumed by spiders. All spiders are venomous to an extent, even the species that have secret venomous glands that produce a gum like substance that is spat onto the prey to trap and eventually kill it.
Reproduction : The majority of spider species in Canada has a life span of a year or two. The dwarf spiders only lay eight to ten eggs while the black widow can lay over a thousand. In Canada's fields the
population of spiders can reach more than 2 million per hectare.
