How to Draw a Black Widow Spider
The female black widow spider is considered the most venomous spider in North America.
A female can be identified by its black shinny body with a red hourglass shape on
the underside of its abdomen.
The male black widow spider is only half the size of the female and doesn't have the
plump round shinny black abdomen with the red hourglass shape that the female has. Males
are brown, some may have orange and white stripes on the abdomen. Occasionally, after mating,
the female black widow will kill and eat the male.
This interesting spider is one of the iconic symbols of the Halloween Holiday season.
Spiders are very easy to draw, and you can learn how to draw a black widow spider in
