Our Worst Nightmare – Spiders Fill The Skies In Brazil

The fact that spiders can’t fly is one thing that the human race has always to be eternally grateful for, however this footage taken in Brazil had many believing that their worst nightmares had come through as it shows what appears to be thousands of the furry beasts filling the skyline.

Though watching this clip will undoubtedly give you the heebie-jeebies and make your skin crawl from head to toe, we can hold off proclaiming the end of mankind for the moment because the creepy creatures aren’t actually flying. The huge arachnids are just spread out upon a gargantuan web spun between telegraph poles.

The footage was captured by 20-year-old web designer Erick Reis who was confronted with the disturbing sight after leaving an engagement party in Santo Antonio da Plantina.

They are believed to be colonial spiders that live in huge communes and use massive webs to catch their prey.

Brazil has always been a country that I’ve wanted to visit, but seeing this footage has made me have second thoughts!
