- Nephila madagascariensis nymph spiderlings,
2 days old.
- Emerging slowly from the cocoon, the nymph spiderlings
remain huddled close together the first few days. A few intrepids
set out to explore the new world. A Nephila cocoon can
contain 300 spiderlings. The nymphs are the size of a pinhead
when they hatch.
