Created by: CK-12
 0  0  0

You have probably seen a spider web before. You may even know that spiders create webs to catch their prey. But have you thought about how the spider learns to spin a web? Are young spiders taught by older spiders? Or do spiders just "know" how to spin a web when they are born?

Animals have different behaviors for different reasons. Some they learn. Some they are born knowing how to do. In the case of spiders, they know from birth how to spin a web. No one teaches them.

Is this different from humans? Are there things you just know how to do? Or do you have to learn every new behavior? Find the answers to these questions as you read.
