DailyDirt: Scary Spiders...
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
- Typically, everyone thinks spiders just eat flies and don't bother us larger creatures, but there are some spiders all over the world that eat fish. Spiders are also known to eat shrimp and frogs... [url]
- Spider families apparently cooperate quite a bit, and older spider siblings help out their younger siblings to hunt down prey. This practice boosts the health of the entire family of spiders and helps carry on the family genes. [url]
- Some spiders build fake spider decoys from leaves, twigs, dead insect parts.. to confuse spider predators. These fake decoys aren't quite as scary as the shell of a tarantula after it's finished molting, but they don't need to be that good to help a spider avoid becoming some other creature's lunch. [url]
