Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Spider and Young

I was involved with a conservation-centered biological survey of a Mexican ranch a few years back and I came across this spider as we toured around setting up sampling sites:

A spider - with spiderlings!

I didn’t notice until I looked at the photos later, but the eggs were hatching while I was there and there were baby spiders everywhere.  Super cool – and such a spectacular animal!

(If anyone knows which spider this is, I’d love to know!)
