Green lynx mother update

I'm keeping an eye still on the spiderlings, some of which have dispersed. They definitely resemble their mother now and have lost their chubby baby fat. And amazingly, she's still near them! From the side, it's easier to see how her abdomen has really shriveled. She'll die soon. I'm really surprised that she's stayed close to her egg sac all this time. I knew that green lynx mothers guard them, but I'd never really kept a close watch to see how long they stay. Isn't nature just so amazing?
