Brief SummaryRead full entry
BiologyThis wolf spider does not make a web, but hunts its prey during the day by sight, chasing insects and leaping on them. Males reach maturity from spring to mid-summer and can be seen performing courtship displays to females on sunny days, waving the legs in a specific 'routine'. The female lays her eggs soon after mating and carries them around in a silk cocoon attached to her body by the spinnerets at the end of the abdomen. After hatching, the spiderlings cling to the female's body for around a week before they disperse (5).
