European garden spider egg sacs
European garden spider egg sacs. Eggs of Araneus diadematus laid in cases on the edge of a leaf. Each of these egg-cases may contain hundreds of eggs. Baby spiders pass all their larval stages inside the egg and hatch as spiderlings, very small and sexually immature but similar in shape to adults.
