They were a brave pair, my wife and dog. That was a bad, bad spider. It was bad because it was in my wife's kitchen and it was bad because it was quite poisonous. It was a brown recluse, I think. Here is a picture of what one should look like when alive:
This next picture came off the internet and I think it resembles the picture above. See the stripe on their heads? This is not a brown recluse, but rather, it is a wolf spider:
The following pictures are three more shots I took holding it at different angles. Sorry, but the last two are out of focus.
I am not sure what kind of spider this was. If anyone can tell me, I would appreciate it. I would really like to know if it is or isn't wolf spider
There are a few spiders who's bites can be real dangerous. Here are the top four most poisonous spiders in North America.
1. - Recluse Spiders (like the Brown Recluse)
2. - Widows (Like the Black Widow)
3. - Hobo Spiders (They are mostly found on the west coast.)
4 - Yellow Sac Spiders, Black-footed Spider (They are like the Brown Recluse Spiders in that they prefer to live your homes.)
I would say that most spider bites happen in the home. A lot of spiders like to hide in your bed, but they can be found anywhere at most anytime. So be careful not to get bit and have a great day, you hear?
