Daddy Longlegs

I respectfully submit for your edutainment:

  1. Daddy-longlegs (hereafter referred to as Harvestmen) are not known to be venomous.
  2. Harvestmen are not spiders. They are arachnids, but are in the Order Opiliones. Like spiders, they do have eight legs, but they have only one body segment and at most two eyes.
