spidersTHE HUNTER

Spiders that don’t make webs are hunters and they have other ways of getting food.  Some are well camouflaged and wait for their prey to pass by unaware.  Others will chase their prey.  These spiders have good eyesight and can spot their victims at long distances.  Hunting spiders have a very strong, fast acting poison and sharp fangs that can kill insects much bigger than themselves.

The Trap-door spider has a cool way of catching prey.  It digs a hole to live in and then spins a silk door to cover the hole with.  It will wait in its burrow peeking through a partly open door, and when an insect wanders by, it leaps out and grabs it.  Sneaky!

The Jumping Spider will pounce on it’s prey and, just to be safe, it spins a safety line so that if it misses its mark, it can climb back home again.
