Another day - another spider-mum. This is a kind of a wolf-spider, maybe Alopecosa spec.
They are really great mums - they carry their egg-sacs and fight for the babies like a lion. When the babies ready to hatch the mother opens the egg-sac for them and they climb on her back instantly. If they lost the sac they carry other similar objects like small snail-houses or so instead of it. They also adopt egg-sacs of other spiders and the youngsters are climbing their stepmother after hatching. (Source German Wikipedia, translated by me)
Have all a great day.
