Brown Recluse Spider Videos

Brown recluse spider is native to the United States from the southern Midwest south to the Gulf of Mexico. It is also known as the fiddleback spider because of the violin-shaped marking on its back. Like all arachnids, the brown recluse has eight legs and an external exoskeleton. While most spiders have eight eyes, recluse spiders have six eyes arranged in pairs. Recluse spiders get their name because they generally build their webs in undisturbed places such as woodpiles, sheds, closets, garages and cellars. Although the brown recluse spider is not aggressive, its bite can be very dangerous, and even lethal to small children. Human bites are often the result of the brown recluse hiding in shoes, dressers, bed sheets or clothes. Play the following videos to learn more about the brown recluse spider.
