Sputnik Update

Sputnik the 4-legged spider has had a successful hatch of the egg sac she produced on 9/8. On 10/16 the sac was slit, and this photo of the emerged spiderlings was taken 3 days later. In the second photo she has managed to capture a honeybee using just half the usual number of spider limbs. Her abdomen is fattening and I'm wondering if she may produce another egg sac.
