Origin of wolf spiders

June 3rd, 2010 | by nick |

In english they are named “wolf spiders”, because it was supposed in a recent past that they hunted their preys in group, as wolves; but science demostrated that it was not true. Incorrectly, yet in Spanish they are sometimes named as “arañas lobo”, although more frequently receive the name of “tarántulas” or simply “licosas”.
