I wonder what the photo finishing people think when they develop our pictures !
I agree, this follows my experience - that they are quite like a fish out of water when crawling around - Latrodectus isn't built for roaming. When pulled from their web, they tend to roll up and don't tend to go on the attack.Originally posted by Phillip
Yes widows will bite if the web is disturbed but they do not bite when they are walking around on you. The reason that I failed to mention the web thing would be that the thread was about handling not about reaching under a log and touching ones web. In other words yes Bill you are correct but once they are on the run they do not go defensive and will in fact play dead rather than try to attack you.
This will confirm your theory:Originally posted by Immortal_sin
The thing about this particular KB is that once it's out of it's burrow and container, it becomes much calmer. I have a feeling that could be true for many of the more defensive species, but I've yet to test it out on all of them...I may be a bit nuts, but not completely looney yet!
Anyone else want to corroborate this?
