It’s a bird….it’s a plane…. NOPE, it’s thousands of spiders living in the skies of southern Brazilian around the town of Santo Antônio da Platina. An onlooker couldn’t help but grab his phone and record the sky filled with these creepy-crawlies.
According to Brazilian news portal G1, this footage was captured by 20-year-old web designer Erick Reis on his way home from a friend’s engagement party. He was in complete creepy disbelief when he saw thousands of spiders hanging from the power lines.
Scientists have said that it’s not unusual for some types of spiders to live in groups as large as pictured in the video in order to hunt… These species of spiders are “social spiders”. They are also known for their massive colonies and sheets of webs.
One thing we know… we won’t be going to Brazil any time soon…
