ID Request: Huntsman Sling?

Hey guys I got this as a freebie here while back it was supposed to be a huntsman sling as of last night it was really thick and fat but now it has this sack under it and its being very protective over it can anyone tell me why and if it's really a huntsman sling
I don’t have much experience with true spiders but there is no way a huntsman sling can lay an egg sac.

It looks more like an orb weaver of some kind.
 
Google says their are 94 species of huntsman. I am not firmiliar with them but it does have the shape. Hope someone else pipes in. I'm interested to know more
 
Me too and I know them holes are too big for slings especially of that size and I have nothing I could do with them and ive never delt with and egg sack
 
@Noah Blades I hope so too. Trying to find a book that is a one stop all spiders identified is about as likely as finding big foot. Never going to happen. :(
 
@APP0L0 if it is a huntsman, she will be a good mother and will stay with babies for several weeks.

You will have to give them a little more space and make sure that the little ones can’t get out.
 
@Drea

Huntsman spiders can definitely make egg sacs

I'm almost sure this is not a huntsman spider though, but idk what exactly it is. The legs will regrow in due time
