Default Help me indentify this spider

It's in the back of my house for a few months and now I'm curous wich spider this one is.

Can you help me ? Here are some images wich I took a few minutes ago:








I'm from Brazil and I usually see it active at night.

[R-DEV]OkitaMakoto:"Cheers, you're the man, Okita"
[R-DEV]Rhino:"I in fact got kicked from a server for tking."
Hitperson:"well done, treasure it forever."
[R-DEV]Adriaan:"Damned classy Roma, if I may say so."
[R-DEV]Chuc:"Pro man, pro."
(yes, it was about me)
[R-MOD]BloodBane611:"Romagnolo, you definitely deserve a LOL award for that."

Black widow spider - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Don't touch it

If you can find the four ninjas in my post, pm me to find out the prize....

Soalic: Because Microsoft Word makes really good pictures.

That's one neat looking spider!

Don't know what it's called but considering it's large hump on its abdomen and the yellow warning coloration, wouldn't want to get bitten by that thing

~ninja'ed ... again

Be be bitten is not a big problem, but I have a dog and I'm worried if it fells on the ground and my dog ... Because of it I want to discover what kind of spider it is.

stand next to it for a couple minutes, pretend like you don't see it. Just wait till it bites you in the hand and BAM; You become spiderman.

Looks similar to a widow but not quite. We have some thing similar in the UK called a false widow, looks very similar but is not dangerous. We also have Black Widows in the UK believe it or not!

I'm guessing since he lives in Brazil, it isn't a BlackWidow of the species you linked to.
I only know US species. But there are tons of spider groups out there on the net that could probably ID it at a glance.

Some pics I have taken of Blackwidows:







And messing around with some editing:
