Order of spider-like animals commonly known as harvestmen or daddy-long-legs. The body is not divided into two sections as in true spiders, but is rounded and very small compared to the long legs. They can be predators, grasping small invertebrates with their pedipalps and chewing with their chelicerae, but they also scavenge on dead animals and plants.
