Thousands of Flying Giant Spiders in Brazil (Video)

Thousands of Flying Giant Spiders in Brazil (Video)

Be glad you don’t live in this neighborhood in Brazil, where footage of thousands of giant spiders was taken earlier this year. The arachnids appear to be falling from the skies, but are actually in lofty webs — and according to Wired, the phenomenon is not all that uncommon.

Some types of spiders are social, and live in packs. They either build one giant web or a cluster of individual webs, depending on the species. Without a clear shot of the web seen here over the town of Santo Antonio da Platina, it’s not possible to know for certain what type of spiders these are.

Entomologist Deborah Smith told Wired that these mega-sized arachnids may be Parawixia bistriata, and that this is a particularly large colony. The good news? They’re harmless to humans, as their venom won’t affect us. Plus, spiders eat bugs that spread disease and destroy crops — so we definitely want them around, although perhaps not in swarms above our heads.

    This vibe is inexpensive, effective, and quick to carry. Also, it is actually fairly durable and even water resistant. And it can be a very good item for beginners for the reason that it’s compact and discreet. I essentially hold 1 on the coffee table in my living room and provide cost-free massages to my female guests Yet another excellent idea will be to put it inside your pocket and turn it on while dancing. Then when you dance close your partner feels the vibrations!
