What kind of spider has a small body and large head, I am in Michigan?

There is this really funky looking spider and I have no idea what it is.

Wolf spiders are sooooooo scary looking. If they wander into your house everyone screams - that's how you know a wolf spider's in the house!

I heard wolf spiders don't spin webs and so just wander around. so there's a good chance they may just wander into your house!  add a comment

Did you see it inside your house? The common 'house spider' is probably the commonest one. Dunno the technical or biological name for it though.

The Bold Jumper, Phidippus audax, has a pretty large head and as it's name suggests, jumps around. it's apparently got green fangs - sounds exotic! Their legs are not very long and they are non-poisonous.

Non - poisonous is not entirely true. Their bites can be very painful, although they won't kill you!  add a comment

It is impossible for me to give any sort of a definitive answer to this question without more information like the size of the whole thing, its coloration, etc. One fairly likely option is that it could be a kind of jumping spider. These are common spiders that do not build webs.
