Invertebrates – Wolf Spider
Thursday, November 3rd, 2022
Wolf Spiders are a family of robust and agile spiders with excellent eyesight, that live all around the world. Their range spreads from the mega-cities in the United States to the dry grassland of Australia. They are especially common in grasslands and meadows, but also live in mountains, deserts, rainforests, and wetlands – anywhere they can find insects to eat. The name “wolf spider” encompasses a large family of spiders, most of which are large, dark-colored, and athletic. Unlike most spiders that catch their prey in webs, wolf spiders violently hunt it down using their strong bodies and sharp eyesight.
