Like all spiders I’m in the arachnid class of animal but I don’t spin webs like the ones in your garden.

I’m very fragile so I like to stay on ground level and not in the open. When I get scared I can flick hairs from my back, these are very itchy especially when in your eyes. As I grow I shed my skin whole, I even shed my big fangs.
