Live in Orange City. This was curled up dead on carpet floor in basement of kids room. Almost size of a dime when curled up like this. What is it? Poisonous? Help please!

Hi, this is a Wolf Spider (Lycosidae), Tigrosa helluo. Like most spiders they have venom but are not considered to be of medical significance and are unlikely to bite except in self-defense. 🙂
