Nature: A Wolf Spider’s Babies

I have to confess to a touch of arachnophobia. But you have to admire the mother wolf spider’s care for her babies. Please honk if you have counted the babies. Imagine having to care for that many at once!

If a baby should fall off, the mother spider stops what she’d doing to look for it and get it back onto her back. You have to admire that.

This is Mr. Nature with a little bit of God’s stuff–a spider that parents like a mammal. Be kind: these spiders eat nothing but bugs that we’d just as soon be rid of.
