Black Widow Spider II

Black Widow Spider II

Home, Granbury, Texas

The same Black Widow spider in her natural surroundings just before release. For those questioning the habitat, this plant was in an irrigated garden. Just 6" away was a rather dry by comparison. She was normally in the dry area, but didn't photograph too well there.

The identification as a Black Widow spider was confirmed from this photograph by the entomology department at Texas A&M University. This is one of 3 types of Black Widow spiders found in Texas.
