Comments & ID Thoughts

Spider found under my desk at work in Laurel Delaware. Covered with dozens of baby spiders. You can see the camera flash reflecting off some of their eyes. Body including the babies was about the size of a nickel.

This is a female Wolf Spider in the family Lycosidae. Females have curled hairs on their abdomens which help the young to hang on as she moves around.
