Caption: Wolf spider (Alopecosa sp.) feeds on grasshopper (Melanoplus sp.) in Ohio. Spiders don't chew their food, but slurp it up like soup after dissolving it with digestive juices. Wolf spiders get their name from the way they run down their prey, like wolves. Most species don't spin webs. They are found throughout the world.
