First of the hatchlings from three egg sacs in St. George, Utah.  These were in a large empty pot in the front
of my brother's house.  © Carol Davis, 8-16-2008

3 egg sacs
Female Black Widow resting beneath her three egg sacs.  No wonder she's tired.  Wouldn't you be if you had that many kids and no
