Lycosidae eye arrangement


wolf spiders (family Lycosidae) have a fairly unique eye arrangement, with 3 "rows" of eyes.

four small eyes in the front, bottom row; two large eyes above those; and two slightly smaller eyes above and to the side of the large pair, facing outward

Lycosidae are active hunters, stalking and chasing their prey– its how they got their name! wolf spiders have some of the best vision in the spider world, infact! if you shine a light on the ground at night when most Lycosidae are active, you might see tiny wolf spider eyes shining back at you, much like a cat or deer's eyes!
