Wearing some rubber gloves when cleaning up around the house will help you avoid being exposed to a direct contact with the brown widow spider. The hourglass mark specific to all widow spiders colored in yellow or orange remains a distinguishable characteristic on the bottom of the abdomen. The bite of the brown widow spider is pretty painful, causing a lot of trouble to the victim, yet, it is not even by far as serious or as toxic as that of the black widow. The size of the huntsman spider may seem impressive, as it has no less than three centimeters in leg-span. The legs of the huntsman spider are actually the characteristic element for the species: rather than having them attached vertically to the body, they are twisted, with a crab-like appearance. The huntsman spider is also identified by its colors ranging from brown to gray; depending on the globe area where it is encountered, the species may present other specificities as well, such as hairy legs, as it is the case with the Badge Huntsman variety. For such cases spider identification is not necessary; but we cannot say the same thing about the widow spiders that require the immediate use of an anti-venom. Therefore, spider identification can be crucial when you need to be able to apply the right treatment without any further delay. Spiders that live outdoors are more difficult to identify due to the large number of species both harmful and venomous. The Myths and Stories of the Camel Spiders To some, camel spiders seem the boogie men of the Middle East, but from a scientific point of view, there is absolutely no justification for the myths and stories that consider this species a real monster and a threat to humans. The exaggerations related to camel spiders are explained by their large size, but what most people don't know is that they are not actually spiders, but a different type of arachnids more like the scorpions actually. The most common color of this spider is dark brown or black with a red hourglass pattern on the body; the legs are hairy and the jaws seem very strong. There are several other varieties related to the black widow spider; they live in South Africa and Australia, and the major difference from the North American black one is of color: they are red and brown. In some parts of the world it is mistaken for the brown recluse spider that is highly venomous, but for the knowledgeable eye the absence of the violin shape of the brown recluse species speaks for itself. The largest wolf spider will not be more than two inches in length, but on a common basis their size is variable and lower.
