I have quite a few which reside amongst the rocks and stones around my small garden pond, and I have been observing them with some interest. Today I have seen the eggs the females have been carrying around with them in a sac beneath their abdomens have begun to hatch. Now they carry spiderlings around on their backs. That is what I call true motherly dedication.
