Black Widow

Post  gatsu7 on Wed Mar 14, 2012 5:40 pm

One of my black widows, which I have had for about 1 and 1/5 years now kicked the bucket tonight. I don't know how old she was when I found her, but she was already pretty big and then she molted soon after I got her home. She died of old age and lived life with a belly full of crickets, roaches and wax worms. I think she died as happy as a spider can be.
I keep one of these around to show people what they actually look like, and I still have a younger one that I found a few months ago. The one that died was the first one I have kept and we named her Charlotte, of course. Her picture is in the OCHIS pamphlet, "A Quick Guide For Recognizing Venomous Snakes and Invertebrates in Oklahoma".

I'm sorry to hear this. Sounds like she did die a well kept and happy spider. Btw hope you and your wife had a good anniversary.

Sorry to hear it too. Finally a celebrity I'm sorry we lost. At least Charlotte's legacy will be remembered in the OCHIS pamphlet. I once had a female live for 3 1/2 years. She was great.
