Did you know spiders actually have paws?

Well, not all spiders do. Most tarantulas have paws to be precise. The paw is called a “tarsus” and it is one of the eight parts that make up a spider’s leg. They use their tarsus to hear and pick up scents. They also have tiny claws attached to them. Some close up images of them are actually pretty adorable, and this is coming from a person with arachnophobia.
