    Welcome visitor

    I discovered this spider on one of my dormant pitcher plants. I decided to take a few pictures of him and he was moving up and down the pitcher. If anybody could id this spider (Wolf spider, maybe?) I would appreciate it. Here are the pictures.

    Great photos Dewy! I don't know what kind of spider it is though.

    Try the website "What's that Bug?". I ID a lot critters there. Great website.

    i'd vote no on a wolf spider...it has no stripe
    also, the last leg segment does not seem narrow enough

    then again i could be wrong

    Dang dude, I didn't know they had turantulas in NC...Spiders are awesome, but they're still kind of scary...Reminds me of when I went down to eastern Oregon. I lifted up this rock and there was this huge female black widow. Your Photos are really nice. Definatley National Geographic Material...seriously, I bet you could get those photos published in there.

    Jumping spiders generally have enormous eyes, short thick legs, and large bulbous heads and abdomens. I'd put my money on a wolf spider unless it starts spinning a web.

    Could be the Carolina Wolf Spider
