You may recall in a previous post I posted a photo of a Huntsman spider guarding her egg sac. Pleased to report that the spiderlings have hatched and the steadfast mother is still there guarding and looking after them! We like having these spiders in our garden as they hunt and eat a lot of harmful insect pests.

This post is part of the Saturday Critters meme.


  1. Cool looking spider, it looks so big. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a safe and happy weekend. Best wishes for a Happy and Healthy New Year! PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

  2. I have fond memories of a Huntsman Spider in our bathroom when I last visited Australia. It was very considerate and left us alone and we returned the courtesy.

  3. Great! Your garden's got a whole new crew of bug slayers.

  4. Wow! Spiders are very useful critters.
