Spiders, scorpions and harvestmen are just some examples of arachnids but they have one thing in common. A lot of people heavily dislike them and even feel a certain degree of fear or disgust because of them. Arachnophobia describes the fear of spiders, which many people have, and this is a severe problem as smaller as well as bigger spiders can be found all over the world. It is said that these lovely creatures have existed for millions of years. They are vital for the balance of our environment as they make sure that the population of insects do not get beyond control.
Take a look at the wonderful world of these unique arachnids, which can sometimes be toxic but most of the time are not poisonous at all - or at least are not a threat to humans.
