Reproduction of Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spiders
The grownup male Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spider breed wanders during moist weather looking for a mate. Usually mating occurs in the burrow of the female Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spiders. Generally, the male spider escapes being eaten so as to mate with a number of females, earlier than dying. The eggs are preserved in the burrow in a cocoon of the mother spider. Subsequent to hatching, the young ones called spider-lings continue in the burrow for some days and finally come out to scatter and find the food for themselves.
Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spider breeds have the longest lifespan that ranges from 5 years to 20 years.
Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spiders have oversize brains.
In the Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spider the oxygen is bound to "hemocyanin" a copper-based protein that turns their blood blue, a molecule that contains copper rather than iron. Iron-based hemoglobin in red blood cells turns the blood red
Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spiders have two body parts, the front part of the body is called the Cephalothorax-(the thorax and fused head of spiders). Also on this part of the body is the Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spider’s gland that makes the poison and the stomach, fangs, mouth, legs, eyes and brain. Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spiders also have these tiny little leg-type things called (pedipalps) that are next to the fangs. They are used to hold food while the Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spider bites it. The next part of the Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spiders body is the abdomen and the abdomens back end is where there is the spinnerets and where the silk producing glands are located.
The muscles in a Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spiders legs pull them inward, but the spider can't extend its legs outward. It will pump a watery liquid into its legs that pushes them out. A Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spider’s legs and body are covered with lots of hair and these hairs are water-repellent, which trap a thin layer of air around the body so the Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spiders body doesn't get wet. It allows them to float, this is how some spiders can survive under water for hours. A spider feels its prey with chemo sensitive hairs on its legs and than feels if the prey is edible. The leg hair picks up smells and vibrations from the air. There are at minimum, two small claws that are at the end of the legs. Each Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spiders leg has six joints, giving the spider 48 leg joints. The Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spider’s body has oil on it, so the spider doesn't stick to it’s own web.

A male Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spider has two appendages called "pedipalps" a sensory organ, instead of a penis, which is filled with sperm and insert by the male into the female Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spider’s reproductive opening.
Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spiders do not have a skeletons. They have a hard outer shell called an exoskeleton-(a rigid external covering for the body in some invertebrate animals). The exoskeleton is hard, so it can’t grow with the Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spider. The young spiders need to shed their exoskeleton. The Sydney Brown Trapdoor Spider has to climb out of the old shell through the cephalothorax. Once out, they must spread themselves out before the new exoskeleton will harden. Know they have some room to grow. They stop growing once they fill this shell. Female spiders are usually bigger than males.
Spiders belong to a group of animals called "arachnids", mites and Scorpions and a tick is also in the arachnid family. An Arachnids is a creature with eight legs, two body parts, no antennae or wings and are not able to chew on food. Spiders are not insects because insects have three main body parts and six legs and most insects have wings.
The Arachnids are even in a larger group of animals called "arthropods" an invertebrate animal of the large phylum Arthropoda, which also include spiders, crustaceans and insects. They are the largest group in the animal world, about 80% of all animals come from this group. There are over a million different species. There are more than 40,000 different types of spiders in the world.
