Description

The western black widow female’s body is about half an inch long. Females have a complete hourglass marking on the underside of the abdomen, which is usually completely black except for a small reddish spot near the tip. As female western black widows grow older, they gradually develop into a shiny black or dark brown, with a bright red or orange hourglass.

This striking coloration serves as a warning signal to potential predators to stay away, as the western black widow possesses potent venom. Despite their notorious reputation, these spiders typically only bite if they feel threatened or cornered. Their webs are intricate and strong, allowing them to catch prey efficiently. Western black widows are skilled hunters, capturing insects to sustain themselves.
