I wouldn't. The Spider bite probably would have killed him first wouldn't it? Better than getting torn apart by a tiger or something.
I doubt it. Black Widow Spider bites don't even kill instantly. He may have died before the other insects got there, but he might not have.
Of course, now that I think about it, since he hadn't been attacked by his animals before (as far as we know) then he might have been dead and that may have been why the rest of the animals were so intent on getting to his body. Either way, it sounds like something you would see on CSI.
