An endlessly fascinating subject of horror movies, campfire tales and dramatic personal sagas, arachnids are animals with an external skeleton, a two-part body and eight legs. They are aggressive predators that will bite in self-defense or to subdue their prey. Some can jump, while others can shoot their hairs. Join us to learn more about Arizona's most fearsome arachnids, including the bark scorpion, black widow, blond tarantula and recluse spiders. We will talk about how to find and identify them, and also what to do when dealing with bites. Find out whether you should always shake out your boots before putting them on!
