Arthropods 101: Spiders, mites, and horseshoe crabs, oh my! Get to know Chelicerata!

Greetings arthropod lovers of all stripes! Today Mike Skvarla and I sit down with Ray Fisher of the University of Arkansas to discuss Chelicerata. Now you may be saying to yourself, "What is a Chelicerata? It sounds like an exotic sports car." and you would be wrong. Chelicerates are a diverse group of animals that we interact with on a regular basis and includes things like spiders, ticks, mites, scorpions and many more.
