Although widow spiders can be found on every continent except for Antarctica, black widows are primarily endemic to North America. Their main prey is other insects, although they’ve been known to eat spiders and small rodents. They are not ambush hunters, which means they do not hide in wait for prey, but instead rely on ensnaring insects and animals in their web. They are not believed to be threatened, and are fairly common throughout their range.
- Scientific Name: Genus Latrodectus
- Characteristics: Because females have larger venom glands than males, only female black widow bites are particularly dangerous to humans. Hand painted and crafted by professionals, we promise this black widow model doesn’t bite!
- Size and Color: As is characteristic of the family, this black widow figurine is predominantly black with a distinctive red hourglass marking. Measuring 7 inches long and 5 inches wide, this model is about as long as a 16 oz. water bottle on its side and as wide as a dollar bill.
