............... but just barely ! So, in the spirit of good gamesmanship, BOTH answers are correct, today only !



With the exception of one family, all spiders are venomous. The spider family Uloboridae is the exception to this rule; its members do not possess venom glands.
All spiders are predators.
Spiders hunt and capture prey. The majority feed on other insects and other invertebrates, but some of the largest spiders may prey on vertebrates such as birds. The true spiders of the order Araneae comprise the largest group of carnivorous animals on Earth.

i missed #'s 6 and 7.

the crap was a bad question. i knew all spiders were predators, but there are three families of non-venemous spiders. (i read all about it to my boy for a project last year about venom).
plus, not all species of spiders in the world have been discovered, yet.

can anyone name 2 types of venom?

..........matter of fact, all spiders are not predators.......... just discovered that fact this morning, while searching for your other two non-venomous spiders.
A herbivorous species, Bagheera kiplingi, was described in 2008.

So Buckster ; what are those other two non-venomous spiders ?
Inquiring minds want to know..............

As for the "undiscovered" comment; do I now have to insert "Not counting undiscovered species" in my animal questions ?
Gimme a Break !!
