Comments & ID Thoughts

Comb footed false black widow some type of that brown widow of some type. Hoping it's a common basement spider. It was in my basement. They ususally have large sacks that hang from our basment ceiling. We have a damp rock basement.Do they bite? Can chickens eat them without getting hurt? Thanks

How do you add additional photos ?

As separate submissions. You can bring attention to them by mentioning them and leaving links to them in the description or comments, people can also find the links themselves by visiting the “pictures” section of your profile page. Otherwise this site is in limbo, I don’t know if/when that feature will be properly added.
