How fascinating is this! I was putting away my outside Halloween decorations at my cabana and when I took the pumpkins off of the straw bales, I found this little pumpkin on there too. It looks like it already had a face on top, do you see it?
This spider is called a Marbled Orb Weaver and you can see why it is also called the Halloween Spider.
That huge orange ball is full of hundreds of babies that will hatch in the spring.
Once the babies are born this mama will unfortunately die, living less than one year.
