Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Tigerosa Giant
Found on edge of flower bed in leaf litter as I was pulling weeds along edge. It's a big spider and there were dozens of baby spiders riding on the rump. They jumped off as this momma moved along the brick edge away from me when I disturbed her. It was fascinating to watch! I've never seen baby spiders being carried.

Looks like a wolf spider carrying its offspring!
