If you look at a spider it can be divided into two parts the abdomen and the cephalothorax these are joined together with a pedicel – which is a cylindrical shape. Spiders unlike other insects don’t have antenna nor do they have muscles – to extend their legs they use hydraulics to move around, with almost all spiders feeding on other spiders and insects. One way spiders catch their prey is by weaving sticky webs; they can then feed on the bugs that get caught in them. Spiders are unable to eat solid foods as their intestines are so narrow, instead they digest their food by flooding it with digestive enzymes they then suck out the juices, and spiders also don’t have true jaws either.
