Some Spiders Have Brains In Their Legs?

It seems like regardless of size, some spiders are just as good at spinning webs as large ones.  But, have you ever wondered why?  Wouldn’t smaller spiders have smaller brains, and thus, have less intelligence to be able to spin webs?  Well, it’s because tiny spiders have really big brains for their size!

It would seem that the brains of these particular spiders are so bit that their brains spill into their bodies.  Even into the legs!  In the matter of size, the smaller the spider, the larger the brain is in comparison to the rest of the spider’s body.

Some scientists believe that in order to spin these webs, the spider would need such large brains.  Interesting, no?
