Ex-Arachnophobe

This is a wolf spider in the family Lycosidae. I think it’s a rabid wolf spider, Rabidosa rabida. They are generally not very dangerous (the venom is not significant for most people), but some people have a bad reaction to their venom. They are also fast and nonaggressive, so they try to avoid confrontation with people.
