Spider Identification

The spider in question is a Great Britain Skinny Legged Lotuselisest. Notice the lightened legs, frail body and swept back design of the frontal splitter. Commonly found on Red Ferrari hoods that have weathered and cracked. What looks like a under hood egg sac is in reality a supercharged turbo egg extractor. Known for short burst of speed and long periods of inactivity. Usually not seen at night or in rain, they are most active after the dew has left the roads. When seen in public they attract a crowd before scurrying out of sight. Natural enemies are large pot holes, speed bumps, lifted 4 x 4s, poo poo's and old ladies parking SUVs. A rare sighting indeed.

I agree, this is a wolf spider. They can grow to easily straddle a silver dollar and they have two large fangs and will bite and draw blood. They are fierce looking and will rear up with their front legs raised if threatened. They hang on pretty well and you can't shake them off so best to slip a sheet of paper under them and a cup or bowl over them to move them. You'll probably only find one they are territorial predators.

Wiki:

Wolf spiders will inject venom if continually provoked. Symptoms of their venomous bite include swelling, mild pain, and itching.

This is exactly what I do. I use a greeting card because it's still thin yet strong (won't flex while you're moving off a floor or wall) and a large clear plastic cup, so I can see the squatter.

Most spiders wrap their eggs in an egg sack them leave their young to hatch and fend for themselves. But not the wolf spider. This amazing arachnid gets props for being the spider world’s mother of the year.

The wolf spider is the only spider species in the world that carries her eggs around with her, fastened to her abdomen in a silky bundle.

When the eggs hatch in 9 to 27 days, depending on temperature, the spiderlings cling to their mother’s back until they are big enough to hunt for their own food. This close-up pic shows the darling babies being carried by their doting mother.

I let these nest in my garden's leaf piles to keep the baddies away. They eat black widows and brown recluses.
