Overview
From the Publisher
Debunking myths about spiders, this book takes an extremely close look at creatures that both fascinate and terrify humans.

An introduction explains what makes spiders unique. Then ten species are highlighted with incredible electron micrograph photographs and surprising facts. From diving bell spiders that live in bubbles underwater, to spitting spiders that shoot venomous wads of spit at their prey, to black widows and wolf spiders, this unusual book will intrigue readers and help dispel arachnophobia. First published as Spidermania, this title has been repackaged as a companion to Up Close with Bugs (Bug Shots).
