Comments & ID Thoughts

I’m assuming that this is a wolf spider but I really don’t know. I live in a very rural area and it was creeping around inside a hole in the wall

Hi, she might be a kind of spider called a flattie. With her hatchlings too! A cool thing about flatties is that they can rotate their body to catch prey at record speed. They can rotate around using their legs faster than any other known land animal.
