    Love this one. She is very stubborn and tries to crawl under anything, whether its a thin stick or a pebble, she can flatten her self pretty well.

    Her eggs are about a month old, expecting to hatch soon.

    Never heard of these where are they from? Are they pretty toxic?

    I found her and a male in Deerpark, Washington. I don't know about the toxicity, but they are very aggressive. I mated the male and her about 7 times and then I threw the male in there and left him in there until she finally got him.

    Is black spider a generic name or is that the common name for this species? It looks awesome either way!
