Spiders have no atennae and have eight legs. There are many types of spiders with a range of habitats. Most spider bites do not pose a threat to humans (unless specifically allergic). Exceptions to this are the Brown Recluse (Fiddleback) and the Black Widow.

Reproduction: Females spiders can lay up to 3,000 eggs in one or more silk egg sacs. These egg sacs maintain a fairly constant humidity level. In some species the females die afterwards, but females of other species protect the sacs by attaching them to their webs or hiding them in nests. Some spiders like the wolfe spider actually care for their young.
Lifespan: Spiders will typically live from a few months to a year. Some like the tarantula can live longer.
