Nursery Web Spider

Pisaurina mira


This was a mother carrying her eggs and she was about two inches from leg to leg. The egg sac was fairly large, about half an inch or so. My second clear photo of their eyes!

Is it possibly one of the huntsman spiders? Wild guess that one.

Gj Met, why is my spider carrying her egg sac in the front while all of the Hogna carolinensis spiders carry them in the back?
