    Ah yeah, spined spiders. Funny thing is, those are probably the spiders I'm least fearful of. I guess because they don't really look much like spiders to me. They build really nice webs too.

    Those are actually pretty neat. As DrWurm said, they don't really look much like spiders. For anything, that one has a smile on it.

    These are actually the only spiders I'll pick up. We called them "crab spiders" when I was a kid.

    I don't think Wolf spiders are that scary though, just unique since they really acknowledge your presence. I've had them leap off the wall onto my shirt before.

    Try harassing them with your finger sometime. They'll turn and lunge at you before making a break for it. Pretty smart for a spider.

    Yeah, I used to call them "crab spiders" too. Later on I learned that they're called "spinybacked spiders." Crab spiders are another kind of interesting spider that stalk around flowers waiting for unfortunate pollinators to land. Crab spiders can actually change color to an extent.

    Also, if a wolf spider ever jumped on me... well, I don't know what I'd do besides scream loudly and strip naked and run away....
