Hi, not certain here with wolf spider, juveniles can be hard to peg often. Doesn’t quite have the Lycosidae look with the legs. Nothing medically significant in any event.

Hi, an easy hobby to get hooked on. I started back in the early 60s identifying and reading about a big spider I was keeping. Went on to catching spiders. Set up my own lab. thousands of spiders later, still a hobby.
