Description


#Fragile

Latrodectus Hesperus or also commonly known as the western black widow spider can be found in western regions of North America. In Canada it can be found from British Columbia to Manitoba. They are most commonly found near the Canada-US border, as well less commonly throughout prairies regions of the Canadian Prairies in Western Canada. The female's body is 14–16 mm (1/2 in) in length and is black, often with an hourglass-shaped red mark on the lower abdomen. This "hourglass" mark can be yellow, and on rare occasions, white.

The male of the species is around half this length and generally a tan color with lighter striping on the abdomen. This species of black widows build irregular or "messy" webs: unlike the spiral webs or the tunnel-shaped webs of other spiders, the strands of a Latrodectus web have no apparent organization.

Female black widows have potent venom containing a neurotoxin active against a range of . humans, symptoms to this venom include pain, nausea, goosebumps, and localized sweating. Male western widows may breed several times during their relatively short lifespans. Males are known to show preference for mating with well-fed females over starved ones.
