Turns Out, Spiders Have Tiny Paws, And It May Change The Way You Look At Them

Aren’t spiders just adorable? Well ok, in most cases they’re bloody terrifying, but that image might change when you take a closer look. As close as to where their feet should be, where you’ll find that they have…paws!

In more scientific terms, a spider’s “paw” is called a tarsus, and it’s only one of eight parts that make up a rather complicated leg. Just like cats or dogs, spiders also have claws attached to the paws, but in their case, legs also work as ears and nose picking up subtle changes in the air to hear and recognize smells.

But science aside, these things simply look adorable! A fact that I hope to remember the next time I’ll be freaking out while looking at a spider in my kitchen.
