Poisoness spiders

Post by dshows on Sun Feb 14, 2010 8:55 pm

In the US. There are two highly poisoness spiders. The Black Widow and the Brown Recluse. The black widow's bite attacks the nervous system, while the brown recluse's has enzymes that eat flesh. I have kept a black widow before. There kinda boring, but very easlily managed. They dont walk around alot. They make a very messy web. Its easy to feed, and they are not aggressive at all. You should not keep either of these spiders because their poison. But, the black widow is fun. I do not recommend keeping a recluse. Their poison leaves nasty tissue scars. You can be bit by the widow and sometimes not even have to go to a hospital. Unless your alergic. or not healthy.

Wow! I'm glad to hear that someone other than me has kept a widow! They're beautiful spiders, aren't they? Surprised

Feeding my widows right now as we speak. Silkworms. They love 'em. I tong feed the widows to make sure they capture the food. They are not the most effective hunters that is for sure.

The widows love them as they are pretty docile (compared to fast moving crickets). Great off the tong feeder. My scorpions enjoy them as well. My Green Lynx spider absolutely devoured one. Never saw her so excited as she attacked it.

Huh that's weird. I absolutely hate Crickets, and I've only had them for 3 days [they stink worse then my colony of Dermestids which is at 200+ and there is only 5 Crickets in a well ventilated Container!]

Agree on the cricket front! The worst but the most readily available live food on the market.

Yeah it's funny how that works out, I mean they are interesting but that smell just makes me think of how sick 1000+ would be silent

Even the guys at the reptile show don't like being near the cricket vendor. He is an outcast!

If Dubias were beetles, I am sure they would reign supreme.
