I know bugs are insects and arachnids are arachnids so therefore animals but I would like to see what everyone else here think..

What I mean is what would you consider spiders? Bugs or animal? Bugs are in insect class and arachnids arent so does it not make them bug/insect although insects are considered animal too?YOU said most people see them as bugs. I merely pointed out that even if that were true - which it isn't - they would still be animals.
So you say arachnids fall under bug category right?hmmmThe scientific use of the word animal or the kingdom Animalia includes everything that is multicellular, consumes something other than sunlight for energy & processes it in its Innards, moves under its own power & a number of other characteristics.
The common use of the word animal is generally reserved for the phyllum Chordata while Arthropoda are merely bugs. We have a sympathy for creatures that look/work like us, I think.
