My dude found this spider on our bed, we put him in a little contraption and have been keeping him as our pet…. because, why not?! And I’m curious add to what kind of spider he is. I posted more photos of the same spider alb’s have many more photos as well. Hoping someone here can help me identify this tiny little terrifying ferocious beast! (Maybe not so terrifying and ferocious depending on what species of spider he is ) thank you!!!!!
It looks like one of the False Widow Spiders in the genus Steatoda. It is part of the Cob-web Weaver family Theridiidae, like the true Widow Spiders in the genus Latrodectus. These guys have similar body shape to the Widow but are usually glossy brown instead of black. They are commonly found indoors, especially in homes and are not aggressive.
