Harvestmen (Opiliones), Buffalo National River, 2015.
Commonly referred to in America as daddy long-leg spiders, these animals aren't actually spiders! They do belong to the class Arachnida but these little guys have only one main body section while spiders have two. They also lack the ability to produce silk which means they don't make webs, either. Nicknamed 'harvestmen', these little omnivores will eat anything from plants, small insects, fungi, feces to dead animal matter. The commonly held belief that they are highly venomous but cannot bite humans is FALSE. These little nonvenomous creatures pose no threat to humans at all. They don't even have venom glands. They do, however, have the ability to produce an odor that deters predators. Also, similar to tail autonomy in some reptiles, these little guys are able to drop a twitching leg or two in an attempt to distract a predator.
