Advertisement Has anyone kept or are you currently keeping wolf spiders as pets? I was just curious because I have had to "dispose" of at least 3 juvenile wolf spiders in my house in as many weeks. They weren't full grown, I would say they were about 3/4 to 1 inch in size, but I was wondering if they can be kept as pets like we keep tarantulas? Will they readily take crickets? What kind of lifespan do they have? Any experiences anyone can share about these "scary" little buggers? They scare the crap outta me because they usually suprise/startle/scare me when they suddenly appear in my house. To me, they almost seem semi aggressive when they sorta jump at you when you try to catch them. I may try to capture the next one and see if i can raise one up to adulthood if this is feasible.
