It includes 24 information spreads that cover everything from spider eyes and fangs to hunting for food and shedding skin.

Myth boxes explore legends and stories about these creatures from many cultures and ages. Did You Know? panels provide quirky facts that will both amaze and amuse. It includes detailed cross-sections and diagrams that reveal the complex inner workings of a spider's body. It is ideal for home and school use for 8- to 12-year-olds. Loathed and feared by many, spiders are among the least understood and yet most fascinating creatures in nature. Using examples of these invertebrates from all around the globe, this exciting, eight-legged guide offers an insight into their captivating world. You can find out which spiders stalk their prey just like cats do, how spiders manage not to get caught in their own webs, and why the venom of certain species is deadly. You can discover their amazing courtship rituals, their astonishing use of camouflage, and much more besides.
