The egg is stored in an egg sack where the female spider fertilizes the egg as it emerges. This egg sac is protected by the female spider until it hatches, some spider species might leave the egg in a safe place to its own fate till it hatches while some spiders carry the egg sac with them and bite the egg sac when it is ready to hatch.

Spiderlings: This is the immature stage of the spider. At this stage, they look just like the parent spider but quite smaller because the just hatched from the egg. When they get out they disperse immediately while some are said to be ballooning. In some species female spider mature slowly compared to male spiders.
