As they are known.

These are dinky little creatures. Fluffy and cute, like a spider, eats it’s husband (all good women do this) not only this, but has some markings similar to the highly venomous Black Widow spider.

Now I am a resident of the UK for a short while, and I picked this one up in the garden.

I’m not usually dispossessed to picking up strange spiders, but I could see the markings on it’s back and wanted a closer look.

Mostly harmless, but a slight record as a bit of a minature bad-boy, as UK spiders go.

Mine seemed AWFULLY FRIENDLY, (I’m sure that’s because I’m just fresh back in the UK), liked my arm very much!
