About this book

From the exotic and striking Mexican Red-Knee Tarantula or the venomous Black Widow, to the tiny Money Spider, you will find spiders everywhere. There are over 40,000 described species of spider and every backyard will harbour its share; in grassy meadows there will be millions; ponds and lakes will have their quota; and deserts and mountains are no bar to the Order Araneae. In this book over 90 species are detailed, their habitats, how they make their fascinating and complex webs, and their distribution, with at a glance symbols for easy reference. Spectacular photographs accompany each entry, and it explains how to distinguish wolf spiders from crab spiders, orbweavers from cobwebs weavers, and huntsmen from jumpers.
