Question What spider is this?

I always seen quite a few black spiders in my house during this time of the year. I caught one & photographed it (bad photography!) & photographed another (it had 6 legs heh.Poor thing.Guessing they'll grow back though?)

They are fairly quick movers.
& I honestly know nothing about them =]

They are (or seem to be) quite common in Newfoundland.
Especially in sheds& houses.
Though I see them outside too.
PiCS:







My photography is awful.
Hopefully someone can help me identify this species.
I want to look up info on it =]

& Yeah I named the spider "Critter" (one I caught & released) & "Spydie" ...one that was on my door

Looks like a form of wolf spider to me. I am no expert, but it has some of the characteristics.

Pets are always your friend no matter what.

Hey candyraver (and anyone else whose interested) I just finished an entomology class here in Chicago and found the following site to be super helpful for making identifications. The second link is specific to wolf spiders (which is what you have in the jar). Hope you enjoy the site. <-Steve->

Yup, sure looks like a wolf spider. Nice find(s).

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4)
