Sir Spider is talking with us!
Web of life
I am a spider. Just your average, run-of-the-mill garden spider. You may have seen me 'hanging' around. I am going to explain the web of life to you because, you see, I am an expert on webs.
Let’s see, where shall I start? Uh hmm, yes, l start by doing what I do best: weaving the web!
You see, there are all sorts of creatures in the wild, and they each play their role in the web of life. There are lots of different kinds, or species, of plants and animals. They come in different sizes, shapes and colors. They live in different places and behave in very different ways.
But for all their differences, plants and animals need a lot of the same things to survive. In fact, they need each other. That’s what the web of life is all about!
Let me start at the very beginning with my very own web.
You see, as a garden spider, I meet lots of plants and animals. Some of them are my friends, some of them are not so friendly, and some of them are my dinner!
Since I am after all a garden spider, let me show you around my garden. The plants you see here are my friends. Plants are friends to everyone in the web of life. To tell you the truth, none of us could live without them! But don’t tell them that - they might get swelled heads over it. Oh, I guess you have a point. Plants don’t have heads, do they?
