- They differ from having two, rather than three, body regions. These two regions contain the eyes, mouthparts, legs, and the abdomen.
- Spiders have four pairs of legs, while insects have three pairs of legs.
- Most spiders have eight simple eyes, but some spiders have fewer eyes. The difference in eyes is often used to distinguish between various species of spiders.
- The abdomen is unsegmented and contains the genital structures, spiracles and the spinnerets to produce and use their silk web.
- Many types of spiders spin different types of webs, and the shape or style of the web is often as distinctive as the spider itself. Other spiders are active hunters that look for prey without spinning a web.
