Vegetarian, no-more-web-savvy spider!

If you thought that only humans are opting for vegetarianism these days, this one will surprise you. Bagheera Kiplingi, a South American spider species, eats only leaf buds and rejects carnivorous stuff! Bagheera Kiplingi is apparently the only vegetarian spider of about 40,000 spider species. Unless of course if spider-man is vegetarian ;)

Also, unlike most of us, Bagheera Kiplingi doesn’t spend time on the web and prefers to stay with the family ;) Since the spider doesn’t need to catch any prey, instead of spinning webs it builds family nests. Now should we learn something from the spider like King Robert the Bruce did?
