< Previous  Daddy Longlegs (photo 8 out of 10)  Next >
The daddy longlegs is a harmless arachnid which feeds on vegetable matter, plant juices, and small insects-dead and alive. It has no fangs as a spider does and is completely innocuous to humans. Another interesting feature besides its impressive gangly legs is the tubercle which holds its two tiny eyes like a short periscope above its body. Here a specimen is shown foraging across lichen-encrusted tree bark.
