i think its a carolina wolf spider but it has a red tint to it... would this be a good spider to keep in captivity? THVnqwaU.jpg vC7_eY7R.jpg yRsl64bC.jpg A4xLxK5R (1).jpg

Some kind of wolf spider (Lycosidae), possibly another Rabidosa. (It's not a Hogna, the genus to which Carolina wolf spiders belong.)

You might be able to get a more specific ID by posting this to BugGuide.


but it has a red tint to it...
FYI, most spiders are not identified by color or markings. Anatomy is what separates them. It's usually possible to make a family ID and sometimes even a genus ID from a photo alone. However, identifying the exact species usually requires a microscopic examination of the reproductive anatomy (male palps and female epigynes).

As good as any other wolf spider.

not sure why you really want to find out the exact genus and species on this spider you found.. you probably need better pics as well.

To me this looks like a mature male six-spotted fishing spider, Dolomedes triton. This is a semi-aquatic species that requires lots of foliage and a large water dish to thrive.
