About the Wolf Spider

Known for their speed, these ground spiders are usually brown and black or dark brown in color. Their bodies can grow to around 1 inch in length. They do not build webs, preferring to hunt for their prey. Wolf Spiders are commonly found in grass, around stones, logs, or leaf litter. Female Wolf Spiders will carry their young on their backs for several days after hatching.
