Black Widow dining on a Jerusalem Cricket
We found these guys hanging from the garage door when we got back to Los Alamos, NM from our vacation. The black widow was about the size of a silver dollar with legs. They really like our garage.I’d never seen a child of the earth before in my life though, and I’ve lived in this state for about 25 years. Well, I thought it was artsy at least. I wouldn’t have bothered snapping a photo had I never seen your web site!
Thanks for the photo Neale,
We have an old spider book by Gertsch that has photos of a Black Widow and a Jerusalem Cricket. It’s just not a fair match.
