Spider Body Parts

Spider Body Parts

Spiders are members of the animal kingdom.  They are arachnids, not insects.

The World Spider Catalog lists tens of thousands of identified species of spiders.

The top (or back) of a spider is called the "dorsal" side.  The bottom (or belly) side of a spider is called the "ventral" side.

This image depicts the dorsal side of a spider from Australia.
