Artist's Description

Taken August 2, 2011

I wrote this on my blog where a jumping spider was eating a daddy long-leg:

I know them as granddaddy long-legs. I always thought they were spiders, but they’re not. They have only two eyes, whereas nearly all spiders have eight eyes. Spiders have two main body parts. Their head and thorax are fused together and then they have an abdomen. The granddaddy long-leg has one main body, similar to a tick. Unlike spiders, granddaddy long-legs can’t make webs because they don’t have silk glands or spinnerets. Their diet is much different than a spider’s. They prefer animal and plants that are decomposing. Spiders attack live prey for their main course using venom to paralyze and kill.
