- Spiders don’t get caught in their own webs because they have self-oiling legs.
- A female tarantula found in South America weighed 1/3 of a pound, and had fangs 1 inch long.
- Black Widow spider silk was used for making the cross hairs in bomb sites of World War II aircraft.
- The brown recluse spider bite is painless but may cause a spreading, tissue-killing wound. Infrequently, reactions include fever, chills, joint pain and convulsions.
