September 9, 2023

I am known as a Brown Widow Spider
I have an hourglass that is more orange than red.
Although my bite can be painful to people
I avoid humans as much as I can.
Instead I prefer to keep to myself
And hunt insects to keep myself fed.

For more spidery goodness, check out the second edition of my Rhyming Guide to Florida Spiders which is now available for purchase!
