Pennsylvania is Home to the Wolf Spider
Wolf spiders are some of the most common spider species found throughout the state of Pennsylvania. Wolf spiders can appear to be quite intimidating as they can grow large in size, nearly an inch in length. Wolf spiders have thick hairy torsos and legs that also make their appearance somewhat frightening. Wolf spiders do not spin a web to capture their prey, they are land hunters and move very quickly to chase down their victims. The bite of a wolf spider will not inject enough venom to injure a human, but their bite is known to be quite painful form the strength of their jaw.
