Spider or Insect?
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Spiders are arachnids (ah-RACK-nids). They are related to ticks. Arachnids have eight legs. Most spiders have eight eyes, too. Spiders are NOT insects.
 
2     Insects only have six legs. Insects have three body parts. Insects have a head, a middle part called a thorax, and an abdomen. Spiders only have two body parts. The head and thorax are fused into one, and the second part is the abdomen. Insects have antennae on their heads. Spiders do not.
 
3     All spiders eat meat. They are carnivores. They mostly eat insects. All spiders can spin silk.
