Heteropoda davidbowie on egg sack
Wow, it has the eggsac almost completely covered! I’ve never seen a spider in a pose like this!
 
@ErinM31 the sacks are pretty much shaped like a thicker half dollar. The female will usually carry the sack until the slings emerge, at which point she'll drop it. Interestingly enough, my female continued to accept food even while she was carrying the sack, and would hold her meal with the front two legs and hold the sack with the rest. It's an interesting balancing act to see.
