What is the Smallest Spider in the World?


It 's an age old question and I'm sure you'd like an answer, well here goes:

There are two answers to this:

The smallest fully-grown spider in the world is the male of the species Patu digua (which hails from Borneo), which has a body length of just .37mm. That's smaller than the head of a pin!

The smallest known species of Tarantula is Aphonopelma mojaviensis, the legspan of adults of both sexes are under 5/8 inch (1.6 Cm)!
