Watching this video gave me the shivers! Two spiders have a violent showdown in a plastic container and one “explodes”, releasing dozens of spider babies!
Apparently, female wolf spiders carry their egg sacs on their back. Once they hatch, the spiderlings stay on the mother’s back for a few weeks before going off on their own. But in this particular encounter, the babies were forced away. It’s creepy but fascinating at the same time!
If you thought these arachnid battle was interesting, you’ll want to see this queen bee being attacked.
