Spider Egg Sac On Leaf

By | October 30, 2019

I photographed what I believe is a Spider Egg Sac that I found on a leaf. The leaf was on the forest floor and I spotted it while hiking the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas (11-8-2018).

The female spiders of many species place the egg sac on a stalk, attach it to a stone, or in this case a leaf. Other females guard their egg sacs or carry them either in their jaws or attached to the spinnerets. The protective egg sac above is made of silk. Eggs are placed on a silk pad and then wrapped and covered.
