|Wolf Spiders are large, hairy spiders, with bodies often over an inch in size. Males are smaller than the females. Most spiders have two eye rows, but the Wolf has three. They have three tiny claws at the end of each leg. Wolf spiders can inflict serious bites on people. Wolf Spiders will prey upon Black Widow spiders, among other ground-crawling insects
. They are ground dwellers, and lie in wait upon their victims instead of weaving a web. They may form burrows in the ground or in crevices of rocks. Wolf Spiders can inflict serious bites on humans, and are venomous.
The female lays eggs in a sac and drags it along until the spiderlings hatch. Wolf Spiders also have the unusual habit of carrying their young upon their back until they are ready to hunt on their own.
