Wolf Spider

The Wolf Spider is the only spider that carriers its eggs in a round silken globe attached to her abdomen. After a gestation period of 9 to 27 days which varies depending on the temperature, the eggs hatch and the infant spiders move onto the mother's back until they are old enough to hunt on their own.

Photographed at Blue Spruce Park, hiding under a rock along a gas well access road.
