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. :-P

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.

I would've thought something like this would happen in Australia, where you can get either snapped up by a crocodile or be bitten by one of these bad boys:

But I suppose if you keep such critters as pets, it doesn't matter.

But you know what cheers me up from being creeped out by spiders? This:

Of all the ways to die, this is by far one of the worst. The thought of spiders coming out his nose and mouth is disgusting %-6

We should all be so fortunate to die by being eaten by what you loved. :-P

I guess all married men can be considered fortunate. Date 'em an they're great, marry and you've sealed your fate... or so I've heard.
