Kudos on getting that close to a black widow(?).

Spider terrified me. Those things move FAST! First time seeing one, so needed the pic. Those ginormous turtles are all over that section of the I; anyone know what they represent, if anything?

nice black widow. when i stayed in Taos awhile back, I had a brown recluse (also poisonous) in the water meter outside my cabin, so this brings back happy memories.

Nice photo of the widow. I have a good-sized one living in my irrigation meter in the backyard. Always comes out at night. It doesn't bother us so I don't bother it. They eat nasty bugs that eat my plants, so Ms. Widow can stay as long as she likes! We have lots of them in Southern California. The meter widow is about the fifth one I've found in my yard.

Looks like a toupee taking a stroll.
Clive James (an Australian writer, famous in Britain) once described a particualrly nasty spider as looking like a clenched fist wearing a toupee.

i have to tell you that i am particularly frightened by spiders. i don't like lions or big cats or wild boor. snakes make me scream (quietly of course)and mosquitos, oh yes mosquitos, those blood sucking varmints and ants, and cockroaches and water bugs and girls yelling at me and threatening to pull my hair and falling into a rose bush and waking up with my hands around my throat and choking on my saliva and wondering if tomorrow will come and if it does will i know it....

Luckily, Jack, you're mostly safe from spiders in New York. I think the cockroaches eat them all. Rose bushes are another story...watch out for those damn rose bushes.

I'm really scared of those brown ones- I heard about them in Kansas City, Mo many years ago - still scared.
GGP: 11th Oct 2006 - 17:52 GMT
in Mexico I saw a lot of tarantulas--they stand so high off the ground, they cast a serious shadow. but they are pretty slow.
Susannah: 11th Oct 2006 - 18:23 GMT
Was the Yam spider supposed to be on the menu, or was it an accident?Just wondering if its something to avoid if I go to another country and I don't know what I'm ordering.

Be afraid - be very afraid:

Michael: I was on a holiday at greece long time ago and i got bitten by a black widow but i didnt know that it was a black widow so I just calmly continued my holiday and here i am alive. No medicines or nothing.
imani: 9th Feb 2008 - 03:43 GMT

Most people in florida who think they were bitten by a brown recluse spider Or Black Widow because of decaying flesh on a wound they have, are wronge. MRSA staff infections are rampant in florida.Ask any er doctor. I found out the hard way.I have a scar the size of a fifty cent piece under my arm pit. I waited 24 hours to get treatment,the e.r.team had to cut out all the dead and rotting flesh...It started out as a pimple that really hurt like a cigertte burn when i poped it ,then grew and grew,hot,red and burning like a cigar was being put out on me....Dont wait for treatment.....

My hypothisis on what spider the first one is it's a Black Widow Spider. For those of you who don't know what this aracna (spider) is, it's a very poisonous and toxic. It bites with it's fangs and leaves a mark on you for a while until healed. You must seek medical attention fast. To reconize this creature it has a red hourglass on it's back. To much toxin is in the fangs so do remember to IMMEDIANTLY get a doctors help. The fourth image seems fasinating. The mass and size of this spider is incredible. I am appauld, it's amazing.
