These two species of spider both exhibit differing behaviors when capturing prey and raising their young. The southern trap-door spider hunts by hiding in its hole and surprising the prey. After making its egg sac, the spider brings the sac out every day to be warmed by the sun. Once the eggs hatch, the baby spiders live with the mother and hide on her back for protection. The agelena spider hunts by using a web, but we see that this spider is not at all aggressive when the cricket caught in her web is stolen by scavenging wasps.
