Spiders are creepy, crawly, and feared across the globe. Even though people fear them, it’s commonly because they don't know much about them. There are a lot of interesting facts about spiders. These facts may change the way you look at them.

Females Feast on Males

When a female spider is hungry, male spiders need to watch out. A female will eat any invertebrate, including male spiders. That can make mating tricky for males. To distinguish themselves as suitors instead of meals, they go through courtship rituals.

Scientists Want to Make Body Armour Out of Silk

Spider silk is incredibly strong. It is so strong, in fact, that if used as body armour, it could protect against bullets. Additionally, it would be light and cool, so it would be easier for law enforcement to move around and take down criminals. In order to make body armour out of spider silk, scientists need to find a way to synthesize the silk-making protein. They also have to find a way to mass-produce the protein. It's still a while off, but you might see some real life spider men walking around in your lifetime.

They Have Brains in Their Legs

It takes a lot of brainpower to spin a web. It takes so much, in fact, that some spiders do not have room in their heads to hold all of their brains. Because of that, a lot of spiders house the excess brain in their legs!
