Do Spiders Sleep?

Spiders do not sleep in the same way that humans and some other animals do. During periods of inactivity, spiders may enter a state of quiescence, where their metabolism slows down and their movements decrease. However, they remain alert and responsive to stimuli. This state is often referred to as “resting” rather than sleeping. So, while spiders don’t have a traditional sleep pattern, they do have periods of reduced activity.
