Comments & ID Thoughts

Can someone identify this spider and tell me whether or not it is poisonous? It was on our patio and now I’m scared for my little ones.

Hi, this is a mother Wolf Spider (Lycosidae) in the Hogna lenta group carrying her spiderlings. Like most spiders they have venom but are not considered to be of medical significance, and are unlikely to bite except in self-defense.
