They are shiny black in color and there has a red sign underside of their abdomen. It looks like hourglass. This sign makes it more dangerous looking. It seems that time reverse counting has just started. It’s really horrible. Sometimes the female black widow spiders looks brownish, but it is only when their abdomen is fill with foods.

Hourglass: Sometimes the red hourglass varies from its standard look. Most of the black widow spider have hourglass with perfectly merged two triangle. But, many of them have hourglass with two triangle separated with a space or one triangle with a small bar. There have also a species of spider, who has hourglass in their abdomen. But their hourglass is not red. They have brown hourglass.
