Over the last few days I showed you how I peeled open a spider egg sac, and then the next day I showed you how the eggs are still round and pearly. Now today, the day after that, I find that all the babies have simultaneously hatched, and they look like pale little gummi spiders. Extraordinarily cute!

They look very feeble, and I’m sorry to have missed the moment of hatching. It must have been something enzymatic, because they don’t look strong enough to wrestle their way out of damp toilet paper.
