Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I believe this is a wolf spider. I took a picture because it was unlike any spider I've seen; particularly because of the "berry" like shape on her back that kept glistening when I took a picture. I took a broom to flick her away and a bunch of baby spiders went flying everywhere. Turns out, the reason the back of her kept glistening is because it was all of the babies' eyes!
