  3. 3. Body Plan<br />Segmented <br />Joined limbs<br />Heads are composed of several segments that fuse during the development of the embryo<br />Cephalothoraxand abdomen are connected by a small cylindrical section, the pedicel<br />
  4. 4. Habitat<br />Spiders live in many different environments<br />They can be found in the desert, rainforest, and even your backyard<br />

  7. 7. Food<br />Spiders mainly trap food in their webs and eat flies and small bugs<br />Other, larger species may hunt small birds or lizards<br />

  10. 10. Circulatory System<br />Spiders have an open circulatory system<br />Their blood flows through veins and arteries and is released into open cavities around the organs<br />
  11. 11. Respiration<br />Spiders have developed different respiratory anatomies:book lung, a tracheal system, or both<br />Two pairs of book lungs where openings on the ventral surface of the abdomen allow air to enter and diffuse oxygen<br />Tracheal tubes are found less often but fuse together to form spiracles<br />
