I have to share my home with this creature and more, it is just too beautiful to do it harm. C&C welcome. This ground spider (Wolf spider) typically lives in burrows. I have a few on my front lawn, some with a lid and some without. If you tease the edge of the hole with a long blade of grass, you can get them to come out. They have awesome eyesight and are very quick. This one grows to about 2.5 to 3 inches across. Baz.
