Caption: Close-up of the abdomen of a female wolf spider (family Lycosidae), covered with tiny spiderlings. The female spins a spherical silk egg sac around her eggs and carries it around attached to her spinnerets until the young spiderlings hatch out. After the young have emerged from the sac and undergone their first moult, they climb onto her abdomen and are carried about by her for several more days.
