Brains On! Spider Sense

Do spiders give you the heebie-jeebies? If so, we want to change your mind about our eight-legged buddies!

In this episode we’ll explain how spiders weave those amazing webs and stick to walls. We’ll also hear how spider venom is being used to find new medicines for humans. Plus, did you know some spiders can fly and others can live underwater? All this and a Mystery Sound!

Oh snap – this diving bell spider is swimming!
