What’s That Bug
While hiking along a creek in Austin Texas we came upon this ‘spider’ looking bug. He looks exactly like a spider other than he has 6 legs instead of 8. Anyone seen one like him before???

Sometimes the number of legs on an individual specimen cannot be used as the only criterion for determining identification. This is a female Wolf Spider carrying about her Spiderlings. Some trauma in her life has caused the loss of two legs.
