Wolf spiders are members of the family Lycosidae, from the Ancient Greek word “λύκος” meaning “wolf”. They are robust and agile hunters with good eyesight. They live mostly solitary lives and hunt alone. Some are opportunistic hunters pouncing upon prey as they find it or even chasing it over short distances.

Brown recluse spiders are usually between 6–20 mm (14 in and 34 in), but may grow larger. While typically light to medium brown, they range in color from cream-colored to dark brown or blackish gray.
