My hubby came home from his cabin in Northern Wisconsin and gifted me with a Wolf Spider who was taking shelter on his 4 wheeler. I believe it is a female as she is about 1.5" (leg span). I see no bulbs on the pedipalps and do not think males get that large. Now I know nothing about the care of Wolf Spiders but I have raised Tarantulas for many years (all ages). As a spider lover, I feel guilty about taking it out of the wild and feel like I should release her. But, we live in the suburbs in Central Minnesota. Very different environment than she is from. So, I will keep her long enough for my husband to take her back to his cabin. Anyone have advice and words of wisdom for me? Substrate, water dish, no water dish, crickets, meal worms...???
