These amazing animals usually have six fingerlike silk glands called spinnerets located beneath their abdomen. The silk comes from inside the spider’s body as a liquid that is thicker than water. Spiders use this silk to make webs by squeezing the silk out of two small holes at the back of their body. These small holes are called spinnerets. As soon as the silk hits the air, the silk dries into a line that looks like a long string of hair. Spiders use this silk as draglines to hang onto as the wind blows it through the air. The spider can crawl up or down on this dragline if the wind takes it somewhere it doesn’t want to be. Young spiders and adult male spiders like ballooning and can release long silken threads that float or ride in the wind to new areas.
Spiders can live almost anywhere in the world. Some like very humid or hot temperatures and some like places that are very dry. Some spiders prefer to live under ground and others live in trees. We have all seen the spiders that prefer to live in our houses. There are about 30,000 different types of spiders known to scientists. Most of these creatures are very tiny animals that help us by eating insects. The next time you are out in the yard and see a spider, take a few minutes to watch this most interesting animal.
