    Found this one along the baseboards in the living room... Yes, he's dead.. Just wondering if it's one of those damn Hobo's you heard about.. I checked the Hobo Map, and we're in the area that they live in...

    Enjoy...

    Looks like a harmless wolf spider.

    Yup. looks like a wolf spider(hunter/roaming, does not make a web.). I have them all over my yard. great for eating bugs. they do like to roam. I woke up to feel one skittering across my back! took me over a month to stop inspecting the bed before I get in! but I have never been hurt by one, its just creepy!

    *EDIT* i looked up hobo spider and it does kinda look like one. hobo spiders make a funnel shaped web so that might be a way to identify it.
