There are over 200 different species of wolf spiders around the world. They are typically brown and black in color. All wolf spiders have 8 different eyes. The eyes are arranged in three rows with four small eyes in the bottom row, two large eyes in the middle row, and two medium eyes in the top row. Unfortunately I could not get the spider to look directly at me for the picture so most of the eyes are not visible in these pics.
With all of their eyes, wolf spider have very good eye sight. This is important because wolf spiders do not use webs to catch their prey, like many other spiders do. Instead they hunt for their prey, patrolling the ground in search of insects and other spiders. They do have a venomous bite but the venom is usually not harmful to people and typically only leads to some swelling and itching.
The white ball at the back end of the spider in the picks above is an egg sack. Wolf spiders often lay many eggs at once which they wrap up in webbing and carry around attached to their spinnerets. These eggs take about two to four weeks to hatch. Once they hatch the young spiders will crawl from the webbing and hitch a ride on the back of mom's abdomen.
