Is a Spider an Insect?

2006 • Posted by Kai @ 3:52 PM

Spiders are the very interesting creature, though many people confuse spiders with insects. Spiders and insects both belong to the phylum arthropoda in the animal kingdom, but spiders are arachnids and hey eat insects. To distinguish them that Arachnids have eight legs and two body segments, but Insects have six legs and three body segments.

With same principle I break down the structure of spider’s legs into geometry forms, and alter the function of mechanism a bit to expand the movement of the structure. I feel that it is more difficult to imitate the movement of bugs than to mimic the walk of large of large animals.
