Caption: Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of wolf spider (Hogna carolinensis) abdomen surface with 2 types of sensory hairs. Also known as the Carolina wolf spider, this spider is usually regarded as the largest of the wolf spiders in North America. It is a solitary spider that is usually nocturnal. They are ambush predators with large fangs that create a nasty bite but their venom is not very toxic. Wolf spiders are fast runners and large enough to capture, crickets, grasshoppers and other agricultural pests. Females can be up to 2 inches in length while males are less than an inch in length. They generally remain on the ground, hidden under natural shelters such as the edges of rocks, or in their own burrows. Magnification: x240 when shortest axis prnited at 25 millimetres.
