Comments & ID Thoughts

ID request: Ham Lake, MN
The cat got a hold of this guy.
Seems to have very hairy legs, but the body was smooth and shiny and almost shell like? Size (with legs) was between a nickel and a quarter.

Hi, see above image for ID (Burrowing Wolf Spider). He likely wandered in by accident searching for a mate.

The black front legs are part of what tipped me off to species.
