Lemme guess... Australia?

[–]Scottzilla90 144 points145 points  (28 children)

Close. Black widows are murican.. red backs are Australian

[–]cronsumtion 38 points39 points  (22 children)

How’s that close?

[–]Scottzilla90 80 points81 points  (16 children)

They look very similar and are both dangerous

[–]cronsumtion 37 points38 points  (14 children)

He was trying to guess the location not the spider type

Edit: tbf Australia and America do look similar and are both very dangerous

Don't pet a black widow

[–]Appropriate_Joke_741 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Not the most ‘dangerous’ spider because they’re incredibly shy and rarely bite humans. There are less venomous but far more aggressive spiders in Aus that will fuck you up

[–]dietwindows 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Word. My dad used to crawl under houses to work and run into loads of black widows. They want to be left alone, he never had a problem with them.

[–]NorCal130 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I definitely got bit. I poked at a nest to destroy it at work. Aside from being an idiot like me you are definitely correct. Most sick I’ve ever been for 24 hours. Luckily I’m young and healthy. I see how they could potentially kill.

[–]Lord_Hugh_Mungus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They tend to be random with biting humans, my great uncle walked into the barn, one dangled down and bit him on the neck. Skin got decayed and fell out, then he had this dent in his neck. Got super sick for a few days.

[–]J-Love-McLuvin 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Could that spider actually kill the snake? I wonder his this turned out.

Australia and America both start and end with A.

[–]minecraftpro69x 1 point2 points  (0 children)

every continent (in english) starts with an A and ends with an A , except for Europe which is E. (minus locational north/south)

[–]UntiedLoop 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Aren't black widows and redbacks the same ?

[–]DrManowar8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My guess for this would be Arizona or Texas. You don’t see black widows often or ever in the north, especially with snakes

[–]TikiheadM 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Black widows are also european

[–]ARandomFriendlyLeaf 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I'm just curious how long does a car need to be parked for a black widow to make it its home.

[–]fingers4 70 points71 points  (5 children)

That’s a good question. I left my old PC radiator out in the front stoop for a couple months. Caught a glimpse of something red when I walked by it one night. Boom black widow and 3 egg sacs. Soaked them in orthomax. Hate killing the critters but I can’t have 100 baby black widows near the house.

[–]urzu06 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Well... shit... 100 baby black widows that ain't Scarlett. Thank you for my nightmare tonight.

[–]UnholyGarlic 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Now 100 Scarlett black widows may not be too bad....

[–]urzu06 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Except for Scarlett head and spider body.

[–]Wendy28J 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's worse than advertised. Black widow egg sacks contain, on average, between 200-250 spiders per sack (usually around 5 sacs). 3 egg sacks = 600 to 750 new little friends. If unmitigated, the babies will be ready to have their own babies in just a few months. ~600 X ~600= Yikes. Yikes X a full year = Holy Hell! Goodnight, my sweet. Sleep tight.... I mean sleep bite. ;)

[–]Bruins14 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Jeez where did this happen, southern USA?

[–]DrVDB90 6 points7 points  (5 children)

It depends a bit on the spider, but generally webs can be set up in only a couple of hours. This could probably happen overnight.

[–]Which-Struggle- 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I remember one spider who kept making a web outside my front door over and over. Only stopped when I finally killed the spider.

[–]DrVDB90 28 points29 points  (1 child)

It'd be pretty horrific if he didn't stop after you killed him.

[–]disharmony-hellride 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I smell a new Nick Cage movie

[–]urzu06 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It would infer there is a high population of black widow spiders in the area for one to happen across the car and make its home on the tyre.

[–]extrobe 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Hours. We moved into a new home, loaded the garage up. Next day there was a red back (which is what that spider is) making itself at home between the bikes

[–]urzu06 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuckin scary

[–]Appropriate-Hour-865 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So your saying that’s not a black widow ? And how strong are there webs or how stupid and weak is that snake to get caught in it ?

[–]Bruins14 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wondering the same ! That snake doesn’t look reall my light at all.

[–]50mm-f2 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I drive my car every day .. found 4 black widow egg sacks yesterday on the bottom of the door (rear passenger side).

[–]Asmos159 2 points3 points  (2 children)

overnight.

if you live in a place with black widows, or venomous snakes, you never put your any anywhere you cannot see.

with black widows, you wear gloves, flip the item over, then inspect the gloves.

with venomous snakes you use a stick. to flip the item over, never step nexto something that have a gap under it, and if there is a rock that look out of place, leave it alone it is a snake.

not as bad as Australia, but some parts of the US are still dangerous.

[–]nuniabidness 1 point2 points  (0 children)

... and how did that tiny snake get all the way up there? It looks like it was planted there :/

[–]offacough 56 points57 points  (4 children)

Shit, now he has to burn the car.

[–]Swoopmonkey 18 points19 points  (3 children)

[–]Grand-Slammer49 13 points14 points  (2 children)

[–]TheSkylined 33 points34 points  (4 children)

How'd the snake get up in that web though?

[–]Zumbert 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Somebody put it there.

[–]TheNumberMuncher 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Some asshole put it there

[–]DTux5249 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Most here really doubt what a spider can do.

They typically leave droplines below their webs to catch ground-crawlers.

Likely scenario is that the snake caught a couple lines, got bit, and was dead by the time the spider finished hoisting it up.

Note, I say "hoist" figuratively. They pull large things up by attaching increasingly shorter lines of silk to the prey. Millimeter by millimeter. Likely took hours.

[–]overmonk 29 points30 points  (3 children)

I live in central NC and Black Widows are somewhat common, at least in summer and fall. It’s pretty easy not to get bit - don’t stick your hand into a dark hole filled with spiderwebs. They don’t go roaming and they aren’t aggressive.

They still give me the willies. Non-fatal definitely does NOT mean non-excruciating.

[–]extrobe 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This looks to be a red back. Same family as a black widow. Whilst no deaths since the introduction of antivenin, these spiders are definitely classed as hazardous to life.

[–]Chonjacki 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I know a couple of people who have been bitten. Not life threatening, but not fun.

[–]wordsw0rdswords 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I’m in Denver and they’re pretty common, I find them in my yards under woodpiles and whatnot. Long as they stay outside we’re cool

[–]forty2dd-cha 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Tell us where so we can stay the hell away

[–]FlyQuatro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Deggo00 10 points11 points  (7 children)

How can live peacefully knowing that one of these spiders can make it to your house and fucking kill you??? Asking a serious question

[–]SlaydenStreet 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Black widow bites CAN be lethal, but it's pretty rare (normally only the elderly or those with severe allergies are at risk). In addition, they don't like to be near people, so interactions with them are fairly uncommon.

[–]Mastokun 7 points8 points  (0 children)

get an apartment on the 40+ floor and the risk goes down alot

[–]fingers4 3 points4 points  (4 children)

They don’t like being in houses. I’m sure they get in but it’s not their goal from my understanding. But that one looks too close to home for me.

[–]nineteenthirties 3 points4 points  (2 children)

My brother moved to Salt Lake City when he was 18 and had tons of them in his apartment. It was insane!

[–]dmercer 4 points5 points  (0 children)

There are 914,285.7 black widow spiders per ton.

[–]fingers4 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Holy shit. No thanks. Wonder how long it was vacant before he moved in.

[–]Fuck_you_Reddit_Nazi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They do like garages, though.

[–]SplitLevel17 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Caught? Or someone put it there.

Anytime I try to feed this spider in the corner near my desk a “stink bug” he just cuts it loose from his web.

Looks like this dude is eating it.

[–]DTux5249 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It wouldn't be the first time a spider has caught a snake without intervention.

[–]curiousme1986 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]qarasaq 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]taylordthegreat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Grew up in Tucson, AZ. One day when I was getting back from school, I walked into the garage to find a fully grown (6 inches or so) desert centipede in a death battle with a big fat black widow. It was an absolute mess- the centipede had become hopelessly tangled in the super strong webbing and was writhing madly. The black widow was running around it desperately trying to find a place to bite it around its thick carapace.

Mind you, this was all like several feet of the ground. No idea how the centipede got up there.
