Cool cool cool!!!!! I have a black widow preserved in a jar. They are sooo beautiful....
I do have to recommend to you something very, very important: Please please please remember not keep any shoes, slippers, clothes, coats, hats, anything wearable in your garage if you've seen a black widow. These spiders love dark places and most people who are bitten by black widows were bitten because they slipped their foot into a shoe that a widow had crawled into. O_O Talk about scary!
