I think this is a Carolina Wolf Spider, but the big ones I've seen were about as big around as a half dollar coin. I've even seen mothers with egg sacs, and they were around that size. But this spider was about as big around as a coffee mug. As shown it is probably 4" across. So, wolf spider on steroids or something else?
