All spiders except a single genera have venom glands (Feather Legged Spiders). Prey is captured using a vareity of techniques. Some spin webs to ensnare prey and others hunt down their prey. All spiders have silk glands which they use to construct webs, nests and egg sacs. Courtship is often a very complex affair. Females lay eggs in egg sacs. Depending on the species, the female may guard her eggs after they are laid. Many hundreds of young may be produced. In some species, the female looks after the young spiderlings for the first part of their life.
