The “daddy longlegs” or “granddaddy longlegs” is also called a harvestman.
Although it is an arachnid, it isn’t technically a spider.
Spiders are just one type of animal that belongs to the class arachnid.
Arachnids include spiders, daddy Ionglegs, scorpions, mites, ticks, and a few other invertebrates.
If you’ve ever seen a harvestman up close, you’ll remember a simple, round body without the typical body segments that spiders have.
Its long legs enable it to walk right over potentially dangerous insects, like ants, that prey on such harmless creatures as the harvestman.
Daddy longlegs eat insects, dead or alive, and fruit.
