Shudder ... shudder ... shudder ...

Below is the brown widow spider, a native to Florida. They are similar to the black widow, though their venom is twice as strong. Thankfully, they inject less venom when they bite, which isn't often. One sure-fire way to differentiate this lady from her cousins is to locate her egg sac. Hers will be tufted or spikey. This particular girl has three egg sacs to tend to. That must mean that she has been sleeping around. Tramp spider.
