Wolf Spider - Gladicosa pulchra - female

Wolf Spider - Gladicosa pulchra - Female
Wimberley, Hays County, Texas, USA
January 1, 2014
Kept her until I could get her identified, and because I really love wolf spiders. She has grown rather plump as of late so I suspect either she's just fat and enjoying regular meals, or she may be gravid. She has lost some hair on her abdomen and I am not sure why, if it could be from stress of living in captivity, or if maybe this happens to older specimens?
