Arachnids are found throughout the world in nearly every habitat, but the biggest ones like to live in warm tropical regions.The arachnid body is divided into two parts: anterior and posterior. The anterior part, called the cephalothorax, contains sense organs, mouthparts, and limbs in pairs. The first pair of limbs-the chelicerae-may form pincers or poison fangs, and the second pair, the pedipalps, can also be used as pincers, or feelers, or legs. The other limb pairs, always four, are used for walking. The posterior part of the body, the abdomen, has the genital opening which is used in reproduction and then it also has other structures. It usually has gills called book lungs aswell.

Arachnids are invertabrates meaning they have an exoskeleton and no back bone.

The bigger and scarier arachnids are mainly found in the warmer regions like what I said before. In the U.S they are mainly found in the colored in areas.

Small Funnish facts:Arachnids keep a balance on nature with their diet of insects.The largest specie of tarantula is the Goliath Birdeater. Giant Huntsman spiders have leg-spans of around 30cm (12 in).Antarctica is the only place on Earth where you won’t find the Scorpion or Spider living.
