Creature Features: Spiders

Everyone remembers the innocent tears they shed the first time they read Charlotte's Web, but not everyone is able to maintain a lifetime love of spiders. In fact, I'd venture to say spiders are one of most hated insects on the planet. So do we dislike them because they are associated with dark places and scary movies, because they are tiny and move quickly, or because we're afraid they will poison us? Or is it all of the above? Take my quiz and see what you really know about the species.

Creature Features: Spiders

True or False: All spiders produce silk, a thin, strong protein strand that can make a web.

I'm not all that surprised that I scored a 4/5 correct, knowing that I watch Animal Planet all the time! ;)

im a herpetologist and we always tend to have a lot of invertebrates as well even though they are not specifically in the herpetology field, i have a few videos on youtube from work, hilarious, but i just put up one of a tarantula cleaning its legs. its not great but its interesting. take a look at my vids if you'd like: the tortoise and frog ones need to be viewed with sound to get the full effect.

And they're not insects. They're arachnids.

5/5! Pretty good even though spiders are my WORST fear EVER! Even the tiniest littlest ones. I can't even kill the smallest ones... I scream for my husband to do it instead. And if he doesn't kill it, like if it falls in the floor, he has to get it... I won't let him leave the room until that spider is GONE!!!! lol.

Great quiz! I remember the first time I read Charlotte's Web and it's still one of my favorites. :) I think a fear of spiders is mainly based on the fact that they have 8 legs!
