Female wolf spider absolutely covered in her offspring. Found outside while trying to find a frog making some noise in the back yard. Wolf spiders are one of very few spiders to care for their young after they hatch. Females carry the egg sack around with them (even while hunting) and carry spiderlings on their abdomen until their second moult (around 3-4 days). I have seen many wolf spiders carrying young where I live (Perth, Western Australia) but have never seen one so completely covered!!!
