    I know the second is a wolf but I just thought the first looked cool and was wondering what It was.

    the second one is one of those wolf spiders that make those big webs with a funnel for the opening. the first one....i dont know. BTW Banana Spiders aka Wandering Spiders are extremly poisonous, dont make webs(they ambush) and liv in the tropics of south america...so yea. if anything id say its a young Orb Weaver.

    Actually what jojo is talking about, the "banana spider" is a local term used in Florida. It is also called the Golden silk spider. (Nephila clavipes). They are large spiders that make orb shaped webs a few feet in diameter. See this is why using the scientific names stops the problems of local name differences or species confusion. Sorry that is just the zoology geek coming out in me.
