Spider Blankets Appear In Australia After Floods
Portions of the city Wagga Wagga in Australia, New South Wales, were blanketed with spider webs after floodwaters in the area caused 13,000 people to flee their homes.
The ground-dwelling arachnids covered trees and grassland areas in attempt to “balloon” out of the region. Web kites are not uncommon after floods, entomology expert Graham Milledge told news.com.au:
“They often do it as a way of dispersing and getting into a new area, in an event like this, they are just trying to escape the floods.”
