Wolf Spiders

Female wolf spiders can be quite seductive. To get potential partners’ attention, they may wave their legs, or even wave a pheromone-soaked web. But if she’s hungry, then males may want to avoid her, no matter how tantalizingly she waves her flag. Apparently, female wolf spiders have been known to eat some males, rather than mating with them.
