Aww, I love these guys!! In the States, they're commonly called Daddy Long Legs. There's an old myth that they have the most poisonous bite of any spider, but their mouths are too small to pierce human skin. This is false because they don't have poison or fangs (they have mandibles that tear apart their prey, like mantises), and they're not even spiders to begin with. They are arachnids, but they're in their own order.

Catching and watching Daddy Long Legs in your yard is a great way to introduce kids to nature and the fascinating creatures that thrive even in urban areas. Now I've got even more cool things to tell my kids about!

Behold! A genuine reason to feel spiders are hell spawn.
