• I was wondering if spider-man's spider sense is based on an actual thing spiders can do so I googled "can spiders sense danger" and the national wildlife federation treated me like the dumbass I am

      Spiders can indeed sense their environment. They feel minute changes in the airwaves around the hairs in their legs similar to how bats use sonar to see their environment. Spiders can also sense the tiniest movements in their webs which alerts them to the entrapment of flies and other insect prey

      Since humans don’t have eyes in the back of their head and spiders have more than two eyes, maybe spider sense is like giving spiderman “eyes in the back of his head”

      Actually, spiders have very very very fine hairs on their joints that can detect the movement of air particles around it up to around a foot or so. It gives them a heads up for stuff moving towards it. Their coarser hairs also detect vibrations in the ground for up to a mile in ideal conditions.

      It's not that, spiders have body hair like us except there's thousands of times more per square centimeter or however much area. So they can feel the slightest changes in air pressure, so basically anything moving near them.

      Actually the full thing reads "You probably expected that. But that’s not all: their most important source of information about the world and its hazards comes from highly sensitive hairs that cover the bodies of most spiders."

      They actually do have spider sense, the hairs on their bodies are extremely sensitive to changes in the air so it could detect things moving behind them without looking

      Actually some scientist on YouTube did some research on this and found that their hairs are so sensitive that they react to disturbances in the air from a fly. When scaled up to human size, it’s the equivalent to feeling your friend wave at you from multiple feet away

      Spiders can feel pain before the pain actually occurs, in short a spider, if it were to be killed, would feel it happen before it actually does. That’s why Spider-Man was the only one who felt pain when everyone was turning to dust, because he was able to feel himself die in the moment before he did

      Spider man's spider sense is based on how spiders feel vibrations in their web from things caught in it. In the spider universe there's a web that acts kind of like the strings of fate and sensing danger comes from the web a sort of time telling ability.

      There are spiders that react so quickly that it raises the question of precognition but I think they are intelligent and experienced enough to perceive the next move of their attackers ; which is something I haven’t heard put forward but it seems a more likely answer

      Spiders don't have a hearing mechanism, so they use the hairs on their legal to sense any changes in the air currents around them. The tiniest change will alert them.

      Spiders build webs so that there's a specific strand that sends vibrations back to the spider so that they know what's touching the web. It's so precise that they can feel things before they even touch the web. Not exactly spider sense but interesting nonetheless.

      Some have hairs that can detect air moving near them, like say something swooping in or striking. So they can feel the air around them move and react to that instead of reacting to getting touched. That's what we call spidey sense

      To be fair, spiders have multiple eyes that look in multiple directions, so unless Peter mutates and grows extra eyes there's no other way to make it work. Perhaps spider DNA with access to a human brain cranked his spatial awareness to ten.
