Many people believe the female black widow spider eats the male after mating. Is this true? Find out as this book introduces young readers to black widow spiders. Students will learn about the sizes, behaviors, habits, dietary needs, methods of defense, anatomy, and color of black widow spiders. Reproduction and spiderling development are also introduced. A diagram of a spider's body aids readers in indentifying anatomical features. Threats to the spiders and their habitat including predators and humans are covered. Readers will also learn about the black widow spider's unique web. A distribution map shows where black widow spiders are found, so the young arachnologist can be on the lookout for a specimen to observe. Full-color photos allow close observation without travel or fear of a bite! Glossary words in bold, phonetic spellings, and an index supplement easy-to-read text. These books are ideal for research reports and general reading. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
