The Truth About Creepy-Crawly Spiders

For some, encountering a spider is one of the most dreaded wildlife experiences in existence. Even the heartiest wildlife enthusiast will often have a negative reaction to a spider. With all their legs, eyes, and fangs, they are just plain creepy looking. It is hard to make a spider look cute or cuddly. The fact that several species of females eat their mates after sex doesn’t help their reputation. Unfortunately, though, we can’t avoid spiders. They are one of the oldest and most varied group of species on the planet. They also kill more insects than birds and reptiles do.
