Daughter of Edit: Title changed to emphasize the gender of the spider handler, though I have very much enjoyed all the comments about my "balls" and the injunctions to trim my fingernails, lol. (Also, I'm a gardener - yes, there's dirt under my fingernails and I'm proud of it!)
Wolf spiders are very good mothers; they carry around their white egg sac in their jaws or spinnerets until the babies hatch, and then the little spiderlings get a free spider-back ride from mom for a week or so, until they disperse to live on their own.
Bites from wolf spiders are quite rare - I have never had one offer to bite when gently handled and not restrained. A large wolf spider has large enough jaws that a bite would be painful, but the venom is not generally considered dangerous to humans, although the occasional individual may have a more severe reaction.
