A female wolf spider carries her egg sac through the underbrush.

A female wolf spider carries her egg sac through the underbrush. The female wolf spider is unique in the way in which they carry their eggs. The egg sac is a round silken glob, attached to the spinnerets along the abdomen, allowing her to carry her unborn young with her. Once the spiderlings emerge from the silken case, they climb up her legs and crowd protectively onto her abdomen.
