Latrodectus hasselti enjoying a cricket.
Nice feeding! Here's one of my Hesperus' finishing up on a Bark Scorpion. The strange thing is, she continued to eat the scorpion for nearly two days, which is quite odd. Maybe it was very tasty?
Why not feed it actual feeders?
feeder insects aren't as easy to get here (the place crickets like are very far away from me) plus this scorpion was very easy to catch compared to other feeders and invaded my property so it was fair game to become widow food. And they're ridiculously common too.
She has quite an appetite
Baby Latrodectus hasselti come out of their cocoon, dad and mom i have also brought up from a cocoon..
My L. hesperus Saber having a drink
When mating latrodectus mactans, what is the rate of cannibalism?
Thought id share my l.mactans enjoying a white roach .still not 100 percent sure if its male or female (first widow here) but i love it either way and seems female to me
If you post a photo of the Palp, it can be sexed. Is it a mexicanus variant? I think it may be a female.
Yes it is the mexicanus. This is about the best i can get as of now as its devoted itself to eating thanks for any help!
That is a female.
Latrodectus mactans "Mexico" - Female
Latrodectus geometricus dark color form
You sent me one of these too didn't you? I'm still trying to get it in a decent position to take pictures.
Yes I did!
Just a thought, it would be a fun thread to show pics of the common habitats the various Latros are found in. Hesperus would easily qualify as a toilet (outhouse) or water meter spider.
