Do male black widows look different than females?



  1. 0 Votes

    Females are about .5 inches long, 1.5 inches when the legs are spread. Both genders have a shiny, globular abdomen, and are black and sometimes brown. Females usually have a reddish hourglass shape on the underside of her abdomen. Some species have a series of red spots and two crosswise bars on the underbelly. Males are about half the female’s size, with smaller bodies, and longer legs. They usually have yellow and red bands and spots over their backs.
