Yep, she’s a mom!

Emarie

I think she might be a Triangulate Cobweb Spider (Steatoda Triangulosa).

Do they carry their babies? I know Wolf Spiders do, but it doesn’t look like a Wolf. Interesting, whatever it is.

Emarie

Hmm I hadn’t thought of the fact that Wolf Spiders seem to be the only ones known for carrying their young. I’m stumped! Gonna look into other species possibly doing this.

Emarie

Ah, okay I’ve solved the mystery. She is indeed a Wolf Spider; she’s an Allocosa Sublata. That smooth body threw me off.
