  6. Hogna carolinensis X coloradensis natural hybrid

    Hogna carolinensis X coloradensis natural hybrid

    Where i live now, these two occur together and can actually hybridize, being sibling taxa and very closely related. It's not very common, however, and requires a small carolinensis male. I thought this was just a really big coloradensis (never exceeds 3"), til i checked her venter.
  7. Geolycosa gosoga mating

    Geolycosa gosoga mating

    Success. This female in particular really liked him and solicited with repeated leg flicks. She made no attempt to harm him afterward
  8. Geolycosa gosoga pairing attempt

    Geolycosa gosoga pairing attempt

    Introducing the male to the female. He's really big just a few mm short of 3". Great care must be taken when introducing male wolf spiders, especially geolycosa which can be very aggressive toward the males. Ive had one chase the male and kill him right after mating.
  9. sosippus californicus

    sosippus californicus

    sosippinae is a subfamily of Lycosidae known as 'Funnel-wolves', of which behave similarly to agelenidae. Spiderlings of sosippus truly hunt cooperatively to tackle larger prey, as prey falls into the web, the spiderlings will quickly swarm all over it and subdue it.
  10. Geolycosa gosoga turret

    Geolycosa gosoga turret

    Ive noticed these guys like to add a single long twig, im unsure why but it may be for better prey detection.
  11. Geolycosa gosoga mature male

    Geolycosa gosoga mature male

    a large male i found, gonna try one more round with these guys- they are not easy to breed! This genus is probably the most beautiful of all wolf spiders, IMO.
  12. Geolycosa gosoga with slings

    Geolycosa gosoga with slings

    Breeding this species was really interesting for me. Difficult, too. Seems the young have to observe their siblings hunting to understand what to do with food. Maybe next time i'll keep the slings together in their own communal enclosure and let them teach each other how to be spiders.

    hogna carolinensis
