Spider bodies

We just learned about the Hornet Moth.

Let's learn a little more about spiders.
We've already learned about the funny dancing peacock spider, and the big eyed Mommy wolf spider.

Let's learn a little bit about the parts of a spider's body.

All spiders have main bodies with two parts, they have eight legs, no wings and no antennae.
They also have chilicerae and pedipalps which are parts of their mouth.
Spiders have simple eyes and an exoskeleton.

We'll learn more about what some of those big words are next time!
