A little about these wolf spiders, they are highly protective of their eggs and mothers especially take care of them. They are distinctly known for carrying their egg sacs around. The egg sac, a round, silken globe, is attached to the spinnerets at the end of the abdomen, allowing the spider to carry her unborn young with her. Once the spiders are born they clamber up their mother's legs and crowd onto the dorsal side of her abdomen. The mother carries all the babies for weeks before they are large enough grow to fend for themselves. No other spiders are currently known to carry their young on their backs for any period of time. And this exact behvaiour was captured on camera and as much as maternal istinct it may show, it sparks a fear or creepiness more. Giant Spider Eats Bird!
