    How to use "Arachnid" in context?

    The word "arachnid" comes from the ancient Greek word "arachne" meaning "spider." Arachnids are invertebrates that superficially resemble spiders. They are members of the arachnid family, which includes spiders, scorpions, and ticks. The distinction between arachnids and spiders is that arachnids have a ridge on their cephalothorax (the foremost part of the body) that divides the head and thorax, while spiders lack this ridge.
