9. Black Widow Spider

Also known as Latrodectus, the black widow spider has a venomous bite that is considered as very dangerous because of the neurotoxin latrotoxin, which causes the condition latrodectism. The female black widow has unusually large venom glands and her bite is particularly harmful to humans.

The behaviour in which the female eats the male after mating, in some species of Latrodectus has inspired the common name “widow spiders” (source).
