Not to be confused someone better known

Our children are hundreds in number

We never shield them

They must fend for themselves

We like our homes

If you disturb us you'll find our bite is worse than our bark

Be aware when time is red

I think it is a

Black Widow

Not to be confused someone better known

Not sure yet, possibly the marvel character

Our children are hundreds in number

Egg sacs are full of hundreds of spiders

We never shield them

Marvel character is part of SHIELD, but that's not the black widow that this puzzle is referring to

They must fend for themselves

Children eat each other while young, they must fight to survive

We like our homes

Web-spinning spider, stay close to it

If you disturb us you'll find our bite is worse than our bark

Don't make a sound but have a deadly venom

Be aware when time is red

The red hourglass on their abdomen is their most defining feature

An alnswer has already been selected but you could be a

Seal

Kind of a reach but here it goes -

Not to be confused someone better known

Navy SEALs are better known

Our children are hundreds in number

Seals usually breed in colonies where there are hundreds of children

We never shield them

They must fend for themselves

Their children are out on their own. It's a battle for survival (technically no, but let's run with it :) For my answer that second line is redundant anyway)

We like our homes

Most species of seals favor polar icy climate even though they stay in water (I mean who doesn't like their home. It's called home for a reason)

If you disturb us you'll find our bite is worse than our bark

The sound that seals make is called bark. As for the bite, walruses are a species of seals, and have you seen their teeth.

Be aware when time is red

When the time is red, could mean if someone is injured and there's blood around, they have to be careful of sea predators like sharks, that can smell blood.
