Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

This big girl is right in the center of Ohio. I would say she is likely a female because she is at least two inches, maybe more. I am not too familiar with the sort of spiders we have in this state but my best guess is a wolf spider because of her size and color. I would like to confirm her species before attempting to relocate her and her egg sac to somewhere safer.

Hi, your photo didn’t go through with the post. It happens sometimes. I want you to know so you aren’t wondering why we haven’t replied. If you still have a photo and want to try again you can start a new post with it. Wait to see if the photo shows up full-size on the screen with the info you put in. We don’t know where it goes wrong for some site users.
