T's have a two part brain situated like a donut in the bottom of the carapace, the pumping stomach passes right through it. It's roughly the size of the sternum plate - I don't of if that IS the largest, but that's a large invert brain. It is pretty sophisticated in that there is a section which handles autonomic functions and another section dedicated to cognitive functions.Originally posted by Kenny
I can be wrong here, but I think I read somewhere that T's have the "biggest" brain among these creatures.
Well, I've been reading up on spiders in general, and have read that jumping spiders have the biggest brains relative to body size. I think.:? Either way, they're rumored to be the most intelligent of spiders, and even can exhibit some rudimentary learning skills. Hey, they do their job well, so clearly whatever intelligence they may have, spiders are successful animals. FWIW.I can be wrong here, but I think I read somewhere that T's have the "biggest" brain among these creatures.
