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:
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!)

Very cool, and the babies are very cute! It looks like a Green Lynx Spider (Peucetia viridans), in the pink color phase:
Until just now, I didn’t realize that Green Lynx Spiders *had* a pink color phase, but there it is.
Oh excellent! I guess I never think to send my spider pics to BugGuide! I know very little about spiders so I don’t even bother trying to ID them…
