The color is of course brown for all the brown recluse spiders, and if looked at closely a brown fuzzy skin is what covers the majority of the spider.
The life cycle of brown recluse spiders is quite sad being that only about one to two years is the maximum amount of time they typically stay alive for. There are not a lot of animals that only live for a year. Several brown recluse spider egg sacs are laid within the summer and fall months due to weather. Out of each egg sac, there can be anywhere from 60-250 eggs ready to mature. The baby spiderlings take just over one year to fully mature. The brown recluse spiders are very strong in their ability to live without food for several months. There was one instance when a brown recluse spider lasted seven months without food or a source of water.
