Zoom in to see her hatchlings crowded onto her back where they will remain for several hours or even days following their hatching unless the momma is threatened, then they will scarper.

Check out this wonderful web site and pictures

Hi Jethro

It appears that we do have English Wolf Spiders, but of course these would wear old gold and black.

So I suspect that the Wolf Spider across the Pond must have some Scottish connections as yours seems to show allegiance to Motherwell

All the best Peter

Wow. Very interesting photo, J. That's a lotta kids. ;)

Cheers Kevin best of a crummy bunch as none seem to be nicely in focus. Don't know why - maybe because I didn't want to sit down (in my shorts) any where near it.

Martin especially if they breed at that rate - you'd end up with a lot of pets.

Liam and also a lot of eyes to spot them with. Did you zoom and count them?

Cheers Y'all from Raleigh, North Carolina (home sweet home).
