Hello, my name is Lauren Saldana. I'm an entomology major over at FSU, and I specialize in arachnids. So today we're going to be talking about how to identify the spiders of Utah. And the first one that we'll be talking about is the goldenrod spider, which is very round and pudgy, and tends to be more...either a yellow or white color with a crimson streak running down their back. And, the next one that we'll be talking about is the wolf spider, which is very slender with long legs, and has dark, lengthwise stripes running down the legs, and also has a lot of hair covering their entire body. And they're very fast for their size. And also, they carry their young on their back in a little sack. And, that's it for Utah. Thank you for watching.
