Orb in the Basement
Since Finding your site spiders have become more intriguing to me. This little guy seems to have a walking person on its belly. Any ideas as to what it might be?

Hi Shawn,
I’m very happy you find our site interesting. Sorry I can’t be more exact with your spider. It seems to be one of the Comb-Footed Spiders, Family Theridiidae. The Black Widow is in this family, but your critter isn’t one of the few dangerous spiders we have stateside. Your spider appears to be a very competant hunter, considering the ground beetle and millipede it has caught.
