Are daddy long legs really venomous?

By, Kathrina Tate

 

I bet you have heard that daddy long leg spiders are the most venomous spiders in the world, but do you really know? People say that the daddy long legs’ jaw is too small to bite though our skin because their teeth would break. After some research I have found out that this is just a myth. The daddy long legs are not the most venomous spider in the world because they apparently don’t have venom glands. The most venomous spider is actually the Brown Recluse or the Black Widow. There is not a definite answer though. These are both located in the United States. The daddy long leg for now remains harmless.
