I discovered what looks like an egg sac on the fence in my backyard. The picture is attached. I don't seem to be able to identify it from google searches, and am wondering what it is? I would assume spider, but it is disturbingly large (over an inch), and found some references which say spider egg sacs are approximately the size of their abdomen? And it looks like it's made of some strange texture material, like dark brown hair(!!??). Any idea what species it might be? A huge spider? It's from the west coast of North America (British Columbia). Thanks, Chris S.
