We were checking out the progress on our new house construction and noticed somebody using the bath tub. I didn't recognize the spider at first because the body was freaky big.

Then I realized what it was and was creeped out but couldn't resist getting closer

Wish I could have gotten crisper focus but was leary of bracing myself on anything because all the little guys were everywhere

You wouldn't think that a spider that is capable of eating its own mate would be showing parental care - that is a lot of babies to carry around. Nice catch.

Maybe she will get on Dr. Phil's show and get some financial help.
