Wolf Spider

what kind of spider is this?
Hi; could you tell me what kind of spider this is .
I found it in my yard in Dorr MICHIGAN.
Im KEEPING IT AS A PET . I’ve had it for about a month. It likes crickets.

Hi Katrina,
It looks like a Wolf Spider from the Family Lycosidae. They live on the ground and hunt prey at night. Female spiders care for their young.

  1. Hi Daniel & C. Neil,
    Yep, it’s definitely a wolf spider, though a tough call for me… it’s between genus Gladicosa and genus Schizocosa (e.g. like this). It’d be one I would have to examine in person under the microscope to tell for sure.
