Scared of spiders?


Wolf spiders are very good mothers; they carry around their white egg sac in their jaws or spinnerets until the babies hatch, and then the little spiderlings get a free spider-back ride from mom for a week or so, until they disperse to live on their own.<br />
Bites from wolf spiders are quite rare - I have never had one offer to bite when gently handled and not restrained. A large wolf spider has large enough jaws that a bite would be painful, but the venom is not generally considered dangerous to humans, although the occasional individual may have a more severe reaction.
