3 ways that arachnids inject venom into their prey
I made this graphic to showcase the incredible evolution of venom-injecting structures that these major groups of arachnids have independently arrived at. The scorpion thru the telson, or the tip if the “tail”; the wolf spider (you can tell by the eye arrangement- check out the lower row of 4 eyes!) injects via fangs at the tip of its chelicerae. Lastly the pseudoscorpion has venom administered via its vestigial pedipalps- it even evolved an opposable thumb to compliment it! And we thought we were special?
