Acquired: Bred invertebrate myself

Black widow spiders are a beautiful insect, but are also quite dangerous. I would not recommend these animals as pets, as a bite from one can be quite hazardous to ones health. Their activity in weaving webs is quite entertaining to watch, and they have a low cost of ownership, but other than these few positives, they do not possess any other qualities that one may look for in a pet. The black widow is not friendly, and does not enjoy human contact.
