Comments(10) # Wolf Spider london e17

So, yes, a Wolf Spider. The Wolf Spiders don't spin webs to trap their prey (though the females do spin so-called nursery webs to contain their young). These spiders rely on speed, guile and a pretty potent paralysing venom (amongst their weaponry are such diverse elements as....?). ...and for those that came here earlier, my profound apologies. I did try to post last night as usual but there appeared to be some server related problems preventing me from doing so. I was just about to redirect you to an alternative server (having copied everything across) when it came back on line. Oh well, on the plus side next time I'll be able to switch faster! Canon EOS 5D
