Spiders

DID YOU KNOW?

Some jumping spiders can jump up to 50 times their body length. They use their silk as safety lines while jumping, as well as to erect silk tents for shelters and store egg cases. The spiders add pheromones to their silk lines that play a role in social and reproductive communication, and possibly in navigation.
