Information Report- Spiders

SPIDERS
Introduction
This Information report is going to be about Spiders. I am investigating their Spitting Distance, Webs, Where some Spiders live and all different types of Spiders
Webs
There are all different types of webs that spiders can weave such as The Scaffold web, The Triangle web, The Lace Sheet web, The Hammock web and lots more. The scaffold web has stretched trap lines with sticky ends attached to the ground. The Lace-Sheet web is a trap spun by a lace web weaver is made of fine woolly silk.
7 Legs???
In a last ditch attempt to escape a predator that had it by its eighth leg, one spider shed its leg and ran away. Many spiders will cut off their own legs in response to danger. There is no limit on how much legs a spider must have, as long as they can manage to eat. The legs are often completely regrown if the spider has more molts to go through.
Spitting Distance
Spitting Spiders can’t actually catch a fly, so they deliver its paralysing venom from a distance, when they get within a body length of its victim they shoot streams at its victim, it shoots streams of sticky venom from its venom glands all over the fly, which roots the fly to the spot.
Living under ground
Living under ground can have big advantages, except when it rains and the burrow floods. But Trap Door spiders build a flood barrier of twigs around the entrance to keep the rain from ruining its silk lined home. If a predator such as a giant centipede barges in, the Trap Door spider retreats into a secret chamber in the side wall and pulls the door shut. When it is clear that no one is home then the centipede gets bored and leaves.
Wandering Spider
The Brazilian Wandering spider is one of the most dangerous spiders in the world. It is big and aggressive with fast acting venom that can kill in 15 minutes. Luckily it’s not common in heavily populated cities.
