Araña reclusa parda

La reclusa parda es una araña venenosa que se encuentra muy comúnmente en los estados de la región central oeste y sur de los Estados Unidos. Mide alrededor de media pulgada y tiene patas delgadas y largas. Esta araña es de color marrón con una marca característica oscura en forma de violín sobre su cabeza y se encuentra muy comúnmente en áreas exteriores en la madera, hojas o pilas de rocas. Cuando una reclusa parda deambula en espacios interiores, permanece en armarios oscuros, zapatos o áticos. Esta araña no es agresiva y solo morderá cuando se la moleste.
