Arachnophobes would be wise to steer clear of Santo Antônio da Platina in Brazil.

According to a video uploaded to YouTube on Feb. 7, spiders appear have taken to dangling from the city's electric lines and other surfaces.

These seem to be fairly large critters, too, plainly visible when the camera is zoomed all the way out, with a rough approximation of size given by nearby transformers on the electric poles.

I didnt even watch the video. I know my local spiders and we get along very well. I use police tactics and use a high powered hose on them when they unite and march on my homestead each spring and summer.

But it is pretty when you look across the land on a crisp morning and the dew reflects off there thousand of webs across the grass.

I'm just surprised we're so far into this thread and there aren't any pictures of spiders yet. Luckily, I'm not feeling mischievous!

Maybe they're trying to create their own world wide web.

Anyway I love spiders and that was pretty cool to see.

The right environment for spiders to thrive endlessly without the natural limits spiders encounter in other places of the world. Deserts are thriving with relatively more horrid species of spiders, most notably the Black Widow...and other arachnids such as scorpions and vinegaroons survived 100s of millions of years in warmer climates. I wouldn't want to live close to a huge nested colony of spiders, that's for sure. :whistle:

Looks like they're attempting to rival the WWW.
