Anatomy of a Spider

Anatomy of a Spider

This site shows, describes, and explains in fair detail, the anatomy of a spider. This site is user-friendly; to see an overview of a part of the spider, simply click one of the labelled switches on the left, and that part of the body will appear, with several organs listed beneath it. Click the name of an organ, and that organ will be highlighted on the body section. The organ will also be explained in a text box on the right hand side of the screen. This site is not particularly useful - that is, unless you have an interest in spiders. If you don't have a particular interest, this information is still interesting.
