Caught this baby wolf spider sitting on the wall in a bathroom. Gave it the roommate speech and it decided the responsibilities were too much and tried to run out on me. Patrick don't play that.

Now it's in a temporary home until I make something better. Looks like it's going to get free room and board after all.

Not a wolf spider.
It's Herpyllus ecclesiasticus (one of the ground spiders).

Sorry for the year late reply :)

That was one of my first pet spiders as a child :)

Parson's spider!!

I know this is an old thread, but I just love these. We used to have TONS at our last place. They're a pain in the butt to catch, aren't they? ;)

I've seen a few of those in MO. Love the pattern on them.

Seriously misunderstood creatures, spiders are. It’s the eyes, I reckon. They unnerve some folk.
