|I have it in a quart jar. It is BIG!|
From the research that I've done,it appears to be a Wolf Spider. The pictures are as close to the actual spider as I could find. When I first found it, in the yard where I was working, it appeared to have grey polka dots in the rear section, but after I brought it inside, and put it in a jar, the hind quarters seem to have changed to black.
