These are real, preserved, black widow spiders! There are 31 recognized species of this highly venomous arachnid. The symptoms of their neurotoxic (latrotoxin) bite include severe pain, muscle rigidity, sweating, vomiting and in some species death. Despite popular belief, bites on humans are rarely fatal.

They have been preserved in 70% Isopropyl alcohol. We refuse to use formaldehyde, due to the high risk of nerve damage and cancer from exposure. It is extremely irresponsible for sellers to put their lives and the lives of their customers at risk for a decorative object.
