People discover a new type of spiders. These spiders catch and eat fish. The spiders live around rivers, lakes and ponds. They like warm weather. Many of them live in Florida.

Some spiders can swim. Some can walk on water. They are from two to six centimetres long. The spiders can catch fish which are bigger than them. After a spider catches a fish, it moves it to a dry place. Then it starts to eat it. The eating can take a few hours.

Difficult words: discover (find), dry (dry place is a place with no water).
