Laurie caught this spider and brought it to me in a pill bottle.
He hadn't noticed, but she was carrying her egg case, holding onto it even as she scrabbled frantically at the sides of the bottle. It was all too much for her, though; I was busy, and by the time I'd got around to releasing her, she was in such a panic that she dashed for freedom, leaving her family behind.
Sorry, little mother. Better luck next time!
