Is there anything I can do to help my spider?
Last week I caught a black widow. Ive never seen one before so I wanted to keep her and study her. I had her in a large mason jar so she couldnt escape. The other day my girlfriend put some more water in the jar but put a bit too much. She got stuck in this little puddle. I removed her from the container today and cleaned it out but she’s still lookin a bit water logged (curling up and not moving much). Is there anything I can do to help her survive or is it pretty much the end of the road for her?
I also found another spider today that looks very much like a widow except its missing the iconic hourglass marking. Its all black with reddish hues in parts. This spider is also the same size and shape as the widow and has a similar style web. Any chance this is another widow with a weird color morph or just a look alike spider? ill try and get some pictures up later
Also please do not give me flak for keeping a black widow, I am responsible enough to keep a venomous animal and have taken all possible precautions to avoid any mishaps. Just trying to save the one I have.
