Clubionidae (Sac Spiders)
A colorful and very fast moving spider that is not frequently observed in the arachnid world. This specimen was captured in the picnic area in April 2002. It is a female, we need to find a male. If you are game... keep your eyes peeled and a container handy. So far, this spider has not bitten three of us that have handled it. Of course it was accidental each time we "handled" her, she moved so fast it was hard to keep her corralled. She actually got away from us - twice! We feel fortunate to have found her again - twice! She's very easy to spot in grass.
