Spiders live all over the world from the tropical climates to the top of mountains. Spiders have eight legs. They are unable to chew food, so to consume their prey they suck up the liquid parts. Most spiders have eight eyes which bolsters trif their vision. Spiders range from less than 1 mm to 3.5 inches. When it comes to lifespan, spiders live for about a year, some up to two years. Tarantulas may live up to twenty years.

Most spiders to do not bite humans because they do not view us as prey. If we happen to trap them or if they get stuck then they will probably bite and may release a trifle of venom. Although it is not common, in some countries people eat spiders as food.

Places such as Cambodia, Thailand, and parts of South America offer spiders as a delicacy. Understandably, most people don’t have reveries about munching on spiders and would not have to contemplate when deciding whether or not to eat one.

For the people who fear spiders, there is a term for it called arachnophobia.  It happens to be one of the most common phobias.  Such people don’t have to muse for long about the subject of spiders before becoming uncomfortable.  They often act haphazardly when confronted with a situation with the possibility of a spiders’ presence.

Spiders botch the peaceful mood of a sufferer of arachnophobia.  Even if you clarify to such a person that the spider cannot maneuver over to them, they will still feel panicked.  Their fear will not waver.

Spiders represent different meanings and symbols in many cultures. For example they represent patience for its hunting style using webs, and malice for the slow death of its prey as it lingers in the spider’s web. Spiders, with all eight of their legs are quite nimble and are able to take advantage of sluggish prey. Spiders may not be the lithest creatures, but they are able to use their web to trap more adept prey.

Even though spiders have a negative connotation, they are the inspiration for one of the most popular, beloved, and successful comic book heroes: Spider Man. One does not have to recollect too deeply to know who that is. Spider Man is the hero of solitude that fights crime much like the spider that hunts prey in a solitary style, eventually causing the evil-doer to forfeit and give up.

Videogames

One weekend, I was at home with my brother Alex and he explained to me why video games are so cool.  He said that “computer and video games are the entertainment media of the 21st century.”  When Alex was young, video games were not invented yet.  He watched Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.  Now, there is Mario Brothers and Tomb Raider. 
     After he explained that to me, we began to play a racing game that was one of my favorites.  It was a close match and I barely beat him.
     After we finished, he told me, “Andre, it is remarkable the amount of work that goes into the creation of realistic game characters.”  I began to appreciate how much work was put in to create the games that I play.  I realized that anyone can play video games, from amateurs to experts.
  Video games are designed for all ages as well.

A Big Animal

The elephant is bigger than any other animal that lives on land, and is surely the one with the biggest nose or trunk. The elephant’s trunk has many uses. The elephant breathes through it’s trunk. It uses its trunk to feed itself. It refreshes itself by squirting water on its body with its trunk. It also holds its trunk above water while it swims. The elephant’s tusks are long teeth.

Some elephants come from Africa while others come from India. African elephants have big ears and tusks.

 Indian elephants have smaller ears, and the female elephants do not have tusks.

Elephants’ tusks are made of ivory. Most of the elephants in zoos and circuses are from India. Often, elephants are used for heavy work.

Elephants live in groups called herds. Elephants are big and beautiful, even when they are young. Baby elephants are called calves and are hairy. Elephants are mammals and drink milk for about 3-4 years after birth. They live about 60 years.

Crocodiles

Crocodiles are reptiles, and have tough, rough, and scaly.  They also have long, powerful tails and short, strong legs.  The long, powerful tail is the cause that produces the effect of being able to swim very fast through water.

The short, strong legs allow them to travel quickly on land as well.  So, the legs are the cause and quick travel is the effect.  Also, they have clear eyelids so they can see while protecting their eyes from the water.  The clear eyelids are the cause and the protection is the effect.
