Sally Joe-Hunkas lived a short yet wonderful life. While we’re unsure of the exact causes of her untimely demise, we’re almost certain it was simply “survival of the fittest”, and her system was too weak to live. Since black widows hatch in the hundreds, not all of them are born healthy – only 30 out of every 500 survive.
During her time at the Spider Rescue Center, she was a truly spoiled little girl, and she will always be remembered.
