Tarantulas Start to Act Clumsy when it’s Hot

A new study suggests that in warm conditions, tarantulas lose coordination and also begin to act clumsy. As per researchers, some of these spiders are well-known for their speed, but particularly in warm conditions they do not move smoothly.

It has been revealed that spiders do not utilize muscles as their main driving force in order to move limbs. Bloodlike fluid called hemolymph flows into the legs, causing them to extend. The researchers said alterations in temperature affect the liquid and alter ability of the spider to walk.
