Caption: Huntsman spider with egg sac. Close-up of a female huntsman guarding her egg sac (white, bottom), and showing her large jaws (chelicerae, centre). Huntsmen (family Sparassidae) are so-named because of their speed and mode of hunting. The female of some species carry their eggs sacs in their jaws, as here.
