Bark Crab Spider I

crab spider and web
This large lady had already lost a leg, whether protecting her eggs or in some other endeavor, I don't
know.  I'm not even sure this was her egg sac but it probably was.   © Carol Davis, 4-29-2007

If this female is fully mature, she will not grow back her missing leg.  Only immature spiders go through molts and
regenerate any missing appendages.  Taylorsville, Utah © Carol Davis, 4-29-2007
