Skin-crawling footage shows a huntsman spider laying eggs.
Michael Edelen owns Exotic Reptile Shop/Rescue in Charlotte, North Carolina, and loves to capture his animals’ day to day lives.
Filming his huntsman spider, the doting mother can be seen clearly coddling her infant arachnids.
Michael said: “Our aim is to promote proper animal husbandry and educate people on some of the worlds most misunderstood creatures.
“We take in rescue animals almost daily.
“There are more than 1200 huntsman spider species worldwide.
“The hatching process took a good day or so after the mother ripped a hole in the egg sac allowing the babies to escape.”
