In scenes which will haunt anyone with an aversion our eight-legged friends, hundreds of spiders have begun dangling from telegraph poles in the southern Brazilian town of Santo Antônio da Platina.
Footage posted online on Friday shows the fairly sizable arachnids, identified as Anelosimus eximius, in one massive web.
A local biologist told Gawker that the “social spider” species is known for its very big colonies and “sheet webs,” and said such a mass dangling is “normal.”
Don’t think Brazil will be on my list for vacationing during this time of year…..
About 20 years ago Muskoka was over run with caterpillars, I remember sweeping them away before being able to leave the house, and walking with the kids was awful these little creepy crawlies were everywhere, I can’t imagine this….:D
