Egg of Undescribed Species of Spider

On an excursion to the first lake, an egg belonging to a spider that remains undescribed was discovered on the trunk of a palm tree. This spider is quite rare and has only previously been found in the Tambopata National Reserve. What is remarkable about this spider is its way of laying only a single egg rather that constructing one enclosed egg sack containing all of its young. Amazingly, another egg of this same spider was found here a few days after the first discovery.
