This huge spider is made even bigger with all her young that she’ll carry and watch over till they’re large enuf to survive on their own.
A member of the Wolf Spider family…she allowed me to photographer her 3 times then moved on to better locations.
How to tell a Wolf at night:
Shine a flashlight outside…if it’s eyes glow green? It’s a wolf spider. In North America, we have over 200 species of this spider family. Only 1 known genus actually makes a web…the rest burrow or hunt.
