Spider eggs are all fine today

Warning: Brief appearance of adult spiders in this video.

Remember that egg sac I cracked open yesterday? Everyone was so concerned that the eggs would be vulnerable, so I checked up on them today.

They’re fine! So I show off some of my microscopy gadgets for a while.

The eggs have a hard, dry shell around them, and are nearly perfectly spherical. They roll around like teeny-tiny BBs in the petri dish.
