One day, John and Sue were out hiking. They saw a few tarantulas on the way. This gave John an idea to win some money. "Sue," he said, "I'll bet you five dollars that the tarantula over there can crawl without using its own leg muscles." Sue thought that she would win, but she didn't.

How can this be?

I'll give myself half credit for knowing that spiders don't have muscles but not the way they really move their legs. Full credit to you for a good teaser!

I'm not sure about tarantulas but most spiders only EXTEND their legs by pumping blood(that's is why dead spiders often have their legs curled in. They pulled them in and could'nt get them out)

More trivia than a quiz. I suspected that they might not use muscles to move their legs, but you either know the answer or you don't. Nice test of knowledge though.
