Grand Daddy Long-Leg's Lair

Did you know that Grand Daddy Long-legs AKA the Harvest-man is not a spider, but is still in the arachnid family?  Did you know they are a close relative of the mite, and that there are over 6400 species worldwide? Of course most people know that they have 8 legs, but were you also aware that the second pair of legs doubles as antennae? They have a single pair of eyes in the middle of their head, and because they cant form images, they use their second pair of legs as antennae to help “see the sights” around them.
