The Tarantula Wolf Spider Showed Me Her Babies This Morning

I check the burrow of our local Tarantula Wolf Spider most mornings whilst walking Wally and although she has her babies all snuggled on her back, I’ve not yet managed to have a good look.

This morning, armed with only my mobile phone, she gave me a very brief glimpse of her babies.

The babies stay on her back until they are large and strong enough to fend for themselves. As you can imagine, she is being very protective of them and doesn’t come out of the burrow very often.

Although not a great photo, you can clearly see the babies on her back. Notice how one of them has left her back briefly and is on the burrow opening. It soon jumped back on.
