Posted on April 17, 2022April 22, 2022Photo of the Day A “Tiger” Wolf Spider (Tigrosa species) lurks beneath the doorstep at the susquehannawildlife.net headquarters. These arachnids reach only about one inch in length but appear startlingly larger due to their husky build. To feed, Wolf Spiders spin no web for snagging flying insects. Instead, they keep watch with their eight eyes, then ambush or chase down suitable prey. If handled roughly or pinched between an object such as a shoe and your skin, Wolf Spiders can inject a sore-producing venom. We like having them around our entranceway, just to keep a few eyes on things.
