Brown Recluse Spider Bite.

Casey Sorrow of A Fiend's Folio posted a series of photographs of a brown recluse spider bite wound. Gross, but strangely enthralling:

It has been a little over a year now since my father passed from heart complications, but six months before he passed he had been bitten by an unknown beastie in his backyard in Apache Junction, Arizona. Eventually they narrowed it down from a Black Widow to a Coral Snake to their final conclusion, a Brown "Recluse" Spider. He found great pleasure in assaulting my mailbox with his daily images of the progression of the bite, most of which I am fairly certain he did not seek out proper medical attention. But that is just how he was. So, in honor of the one year anniversary of my father's death I present to you his battle with a Brown "Recluse" Spider, a saga in 6 parts.

No need to be afraid. Get yourself some Spider Traps to catch the beasties then get a Brown Recluse First Aid Kit to protect yourself if bitten.
