What is an Arachnid?

Arachnid is the technical name for a family of beautiful 8 legged creatures. They have no wings or antennae, are carnivorous (eat meat) and their legs have bendable joints.

Spiders are probably the most well-known of the arachnid family but scorpions, ticks and mites are also members.
