Black widow spider

The black widow spider is one of the many creatures found at The Colorado Plateau Museum of Arthropod Biodiversity at Northern Arizona University. The museum houses more than 250,000 arthropod specimens, primarily from the western United States and Mexico. The major goal of the museum is to make the collection more relevant to ecologists, especially those working on projects related to issues of conservation and biodiversity. Museum staff help researchers identify insects, spiders, and other bugs.  Photo: IDEA Lab
