The wolf spider

Photography

The licósidos (Lycosidae) are a family of spiders, the biggest that we can find in Europe, they are something like our small tarantulas.

We can find them wandering on the ground, in which they dig their own galleries from which they will stalk their prey. These spiders do not build fabrics, but they practice an active hunting guided by the vibrations that their possible captures print on the ground.

A comienzos de noviembre, mientras trabajábamos en el olivar, pudimos contemplar a esta meritoria hembra de araña lobo con toda su descendencia a cuestas. Sobre su espalda llevará a todas partes a sus minúsculas crías, que sólo se bajarán de mamá araña para alimentarse o beber, regresando rápidamente al protector abrigo de su madre.
