Number 7
The Black Widow

A Black WidowYou are likely going to have heard of this infamous spider. Their venom has been reported to be more potent than a cobra or coral snake. In fact, 63 deaths were recorded between the years 1950 and 1959. Another strange fact about the black widow spider is that after breeding, the female spider  ( you can tell if it’s female because the male spiders are almost twice as small as the females and are brown in coloration) will devour the male. However, the occasional ones that do get away go on to fertilize other female’s eggs.
