Are Wolf Spiders Dangerous?

The vast majority of wolf spiders around the world are not dangerous to an average healthy adult. There are potentially a few species in South America and Australia (this says otherwise for Australia) that may cause necrosis around the bite wound, but besides that, they should not be considered dangerous. Wolf spiders are solo hunters that usually dwell on the ground. They are found all over the world and mainly hunt insects and other small invertebrates. Because of this, they can be easy spiders to care for if you desire to do so. They are fascinating and beautiful spiders.
