Can someone please tell me what this spider is
It appears to be one of the Wolf Spiders in the family Lycosidae.
Thank you for the prompt response. Are these poisonous?
They have venom, but it isn’t anything to go out of your way to protect yourself from. They use it on prey (humans are way too much meat) and in self defense if you push skin against it in a threatening way. The worst case scenario is a bacterial infection from the skin puncture or an unexpected allergic reaction. You have much riskier types of critters in Florida 🙁
Thank you Tangled Web! I’m afraid to ask what scarier critters we have, I only know of the brown recluse (which I thought this spider wolf was). Have a great day!
