Daddy Long Legs are cool spiders. Right? Wrong!!

Daddy Long Legs are NOT spiders, or even insects, at all! They are part of the Arachnid family but in a different class.  They are, in fact, called Harvestmen.  They have 3 body sections, not two like spiders, and their legs have seven sections which they can break off to surprise or distract a predator.
