Western Black WidowLatrodectus hesperus

Spiders of the genus Latrodectus are found worldwide, and in North America, black widows are among the few species harmful to people. Still, they’re web builders that stay in their retreats day and night. If you see one outside its web, it’s likely a male in search of a female. That trip can end badly. As their name suggests, female black widows sometimes eat males after mating.

Check me out: If I have a red hourglass on my underside, I’m a widow spider.

Species Range: From Canada to the warmer regions of the western U.S. and south to Mexico

Habitat: Terrestrial; crevices, including those in and around houses

Should you worry? Yes. I’m shy and my fangs are small, but my venom is potent. Black widow venom contains powerful chemicals called neurotoxins, including one specific to vertebrates like us. Once injected, the venom may flood nerve endings with chemical signals, causing paralysis. 

Unlikely to Bite: Black widows are shy and tend not to bite humans unless disturbed. Most bites involve such a small amount of venom that the victim survives.

historical-nonfiction:

Were the samurai brought down by makeup? During the Edo Period, actors and geisha made lead-based make up popular among upper-class women. Not only did this harm the samurai class women — it seriously hurt their children. Tamiji Nakashima of Japan’s University of Occupational and Environmental Health studied the bones of Samurai children and adults to discover their cause of death. Based on chemical and X-ray analysis, the bones of the children in the study contained levels of lead dozens of times higher than both the male and female adults. Obviously, this is a problem for the ruling class. If the majority of your next generation is deformed, mentally delayed, or even disabled due to toxic early exposure to lead, your country is heading for trouble. It is suggested that the lack of mentally capable people running the Shogunate contributed to its inability to deal with the series of political crises between 1853 - 1867. This ended with the downfall of the samurai-supported Shogunate and the Meiji Restoration of the emperor.
