In this episode, we learned about spiders, especially the Darwin's Bark Spider and some questions from you, our listeners. Spiders are fascinating creatures with unique characteristics: they belong to the arachnid family and can be found worldwide in various sizes and colours. They exhibit remarkable abilities, from web-spinning and hunting to having special features like blue blood and multiple eyes. These diverse and often misunderstood creatures play crucial roles in ecosystems, acting as natural pest controllers and showcasing nature's ingenuity in adaptation and survival.
