Just in time for Halloween, we're learning an interesting fact about the Ogre-Faced Spider.

Scientists have learned they can hear even though they don't have ears.

It turns out they are able to listen to sounds through receptors on their legs, including leg hairs.

They can detect sounds from at least six-and-a-half feet away.
