I love wolf spiders – they are everything a spider should be IMO. Hairy? Check. Scuttling? Check. Big enough to put you slightly on edge? Check.

During lockdown I’ve been noticing a lot more spiders in our house and garden. Last week I watched an egg sac explode into life, releasing hundreds of tiny yellow spiders into the spring sunshine.

Wanting to know more about our eight-legged lodgers, I decided to contact experts at the Natural History Museum to ask them about my finds.
