Wolf Spider: Babies On Board

From a distance you might think this was one hairy mo' fo' of a spider. Not only are they already huge in general, they are so on the go they carry their egg sack whenever they scatter to, and then this... carrying ALL their babies on their back after they are born! This wolf spider was at the window inside my house trying to find a way out so I caught it in this large glass to get a closer look and then release it outside. I think there were about 5 babies that fell off in the process (sorry little guys) and if you are arachnophobic you would have pee'd yourself when you saw how the baby blob would move around in tight waves when touched... holy freakiness!
