Black Footed Spiders
(alternately known as the yellow sac spider or black-footed spider)

Black Footed Spiders The black-footed spider has a body length of between 4mm and 9mm (1/6" and 1/3"), though its leg span can reach up to 30mm (1") across. It is a pale yellow-beige in colour, with dark markings on its palps, jaws, and feet. The black-footed spider builds small silk nests in which it lairs and lays its eggs, but does not use a web to catch prey. Instead it is an active hunter. Black-footed spiders are nocturnal, and typically retreat to their nests during the day. Their bites can be painful, but they are not believed to be toxic to humans.
