Large very dark gray with black bands on the body of the spider. Tan markings on the legs. Furry looking, but sorta like velvet. Aggressive, kept raising its front legs up and cleaning its fangs. Larger than a silver dollar, but not by much. This spider is a lot darker and smaller than the wolf spiders I've seen around here. But maybe it's a young one? Keeps running at my hand as I turn the mason jar. Kind of afraid to let it go.
