White and Brown Western Widow Spider

Picture of a western male white and brown spider. These spiders are usually very small. Most of the western males I find in my front yard are around a 1/2 inch long.

  1. This spider is beautiful! But unfortunately, these brown spiders are more dangerous than their cousin (black widow spiders). However, in practice, the Brown Widow is considered less dangerous, the main reason being that the brown widow spider is sometimes too small to be able to penetrate human skin and deliver any venom at all.
