Unknown spider in the meadow grasses. With egg sac and babies

Awesome Carol! You could also add this to the Brooding Behavior in Arthropods mission!
Yes - those are in the right family. :)
No, definitely not that. Wolf spiders have this kind of striping and are known for carrying their load of babies around on their back. But thanks for the suggestion! :)
Its Flower mimicking spider...Alike...http://www.flickr.com/photos/richardheal...
Oh good! :)
Your information actually helped me and I somehow ended up finding the correct ID. Pennsylvania Grass Spider. (The babies, spiders legs and egg sack with virtually identical to mine.) Thanks! It was a great find for me. :)
Yep, I'll agree with wolf spider. Amazing timing! We found this one a couple of days ago...http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/782...

No - the stripes say Wolf Spider. I don't know what kind, though, and it seems that it can be hard to tell. I'm guessing Rabid Wolf Spider but for no good reason except it seems I most often see photos of them with their babies like this.Nice find!
Small WONDERS, Could you take a look at this spider? Is this like yours or a Grass Spider. Thanks so much! Still unknown.
Awesome find! Carrying babies & everything ;o)
