A huge spider with distinctive green stripes. It is found all over the world, particularly in forested areas. It can produce a sticky silk like most other large spiders and wraps its prey up before devouring it. If you ever find yourself attacked by a black widow, you can be sure that it is a female specimen. The males are so undersized compared to the females that they would never dare attack humans and are sometimes even preyed upon by the females of their own species. This heartless practice is where their memorable name comes from.
