Rumble / Wild WildlifeThis is one heavy load for a wolf spider in Queensland, Australia. Bug enthusiast Lisa Van Kula Donovan recorded this footage of a female wolf spider carrying a nursery of baby spiders on her back. At first glance the spider appears normal and unremarkable. However, when the camera zooms in you can see hundreds of newly-hatched baby spiders. Credit: wannabe_entomologist via Storyful
