Wolf Spiders Too Close For Comfort

Hello, Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here.

I posted this on Reddit and discovered it is a wolf spider.

This little dude was only 3/4 inch around, but caused quite a stir due to lack of perspective.

Spooky to some, but helpful to me. These guys can eat a lot of insects. I wonder if they think. There seems to be so much intelligence in those eyes.

No warmth though. I am not sure that hugging would be the best option.

I will look for warmth at church. This week we have a special speaker and I will be attending several nights this week.

    Wolf spiders are prominent in my area. I’m fine with them as long, as they stay outside. Although, the size of the one in your photograph would have sent me running far far away. Haha!

      Ha ha! Spiders do need to stay outdoors. This one was 3/4 inch all around .

    I want nothing to do with wolf spiders, black widows and brown recluse spider πŸ•· – nope – no thank you from me! I have all those in my area 😝😝😝

    I miss the small tiny little insects they had in Massachusetts – the nice quiet little normal house spider

    Not bugs on steroids and all HUGE!
