There are a variety of different species of wolf spider. They can be found in habitats such as forests, meadows, and even suburban gardens. Wolf Spiders are large, hairy spiders usually black, gray and brown in color. Wolf spiders have two body parts with eight legs, eight eyes and fang-like mouthparts. Though wolf spiders are usually harmless to humans, their venomous bite can cause swelling, mild pain and itching. Wolf spiders do not use webs to capture prey. They stalk, chase and pounce on their prey like a wolf. Unlike other spiders that attach their egg-sack to their web, the female wolf spider carries its egg sac on her abdomen until the spiderlings hatch.
