cellar spider carrying its egg sack.When i was wandering in my garden, surprisingly I noticed a cellar spider carrying her egg sack. I was mesmerized for a moment of mothers love and captured this moment.
Pholcids are found in every continent in the world except Antarctica where it is too cold for them to survive. They hang inverted in messy, irregular, tangled webs. These webs are constructed in dark and damp recesses, such as: caves, under rocks and loose bark, abandoned mammal burrows, and undisturbed areas in buildings, such as cellars (hence the common name "cellar spider"). However, Pholcids are also quite commonly found in warm, dry places, such as household windows and attics.
