Wolf spider with its young
Wolf spider (Lycosa sp.) protecting its young and egg sac. The wolf spider spins a ball of silk around its eggs and carries the sac until the eggs hatch. After hatching, the young spiderlings stay with their mother, clinging to her body. Wolf spiders are fast-running terrestrial predators, taking insects and other small invertebrates. They do not spin home webs.
