Wolf Spider

Wolf Spiders – Family Lycosidae.  The wolf spiders are hunting spiders which although they have the ability to spin webs, do not do so for catching prey.  The female carries the egg sac with her wherever she goes.  Once the young spiderlings hatch from the egg sac, they ride on the mother’s back until old enough to fend for themselves.  Some wolf spider species are quite large causing a fear reaction in most people as they are also very quick.  They feed on insects and other spiders.
