More than half of all known spider species have given up on building webs, choosing instead to grab their prey directly. Researchers have now discovered they cling onto prey using hairy adhesive pads on their feet called scopulae. Their leg hairs (pictured - those are magnified leg claws, not pincers) split into numerous branches and bind using intermolecular adhesive forces.
