Comments & ID Thoughts

My first thought was a House Spider and Wolf Spider had babies?
Only seen 2 of these both on 4.26.24 in the afternoon and another at night same spot ceiling of my patio.
Have no idea what this is as I have never seen this spider in Rio Rancho and we get some creepy crawlies here!

I'd like to know what it eats and if it is harmful to children, adults and pets?

This is a wolf spider. I’m thinking Alopecosa kochi. The small abdomen suggest a male.
None of the wolf spiders will pose any thereat to you, pets, or older children.
They can be provoked to bite and may sting a bit like a mild bee sting, thats the worst.
