Oh-no! We’re using up our supply of Voltstone j

rocks too quickly! Let's get to our

Wow! Look at that!

Captain, the Arachno Base computer is detecting signs of

Voltstone rocks straight ahead!

Stay alert! We don’t know what we might find out here!

It might be coming from that asteroid field. Let’s check it out!

LEGO Adventures! 5 |

You were right, Professor! The whole asteroid field is made up of Voltstone rocks!

What is this? It seems to be some kind of electrical force field!

It’s like a giant energy web! What could have created it?

Look over there! There's something on that large asteroid!

The tarantula is oneof @

the largest spiders in the world and lives in hot countries. The poison in its fangs can be lethal if it bites you!

10 LEGO Adventures!

There are many species of a living all over the world. Althoug

most spiders aré harmless to : people, a few are very poisonous:

Spiders are not ..# e

-- imsects. They * .~- _ belong toa

group of creatures

called arachnids

(a-rak-nids) that

all have eight

legs. Insects only

have six legs.

Male spiders, like this Green Lynx, are smaller than females.

oa ive for a Some spiders can live Tor 1 long time. Tarantulas can lve for up to twenty years:

Spiders have lots of special hairs on their legs. These hairs move to alert them if juicy prey lands on their sticky web.

Spiders spin silken webs to catch insects. The webs are very sticky and insects that land on them cannot escape!

Spiders have at least four eyes and some have as many as eight. This allows them to find food with ease.

In desert areas, where there are few hiding places, spiders live in holes in the ground.

Build a solid base oe for the spider

ee before adding the creature's legs.

Try adding extra special LEGO pieces for decoration. We've added a large wheel to our model.

More building ideas!

Here’s a great Space Bat to make, with huge wings!

This Space Rat has large eyes and special landing skids for feet.
