Black Widow

Latrodectus

Description:

Found this large female Black Widow spider hanging out under an old tarp. She was accompanied by several bug carcasses.

Habitat:

Living under an old tarp that had been lying outside in the yard.

Notes:

When she came out from under the tarp she began to run. I turned her over to look for the characteristic black widow markings and she played dead until I turned her back over.

Nice series! I am guessing you turned her over with a stick or something?
