Behavior and Habitat of Spiders

Blood fills up all the empty space in a spider's body and helps it to keep its legs stiff so it can walk. As spiders grow, they shed their exoskeleton to make room for a larger, newer exoskeleton. They molt many times before they become adults. Many spiders live for only one year, but some, like tarantulas, can live much longer.
