Gross: Millions of Spiders Raining Down From the sky in This Town [Photo]
If you do not like spiders, do not read this. Better yet, don't move to this town!
It's reminiscent of a scene out of a horror movie. Millions of spiders falling out of the sky!
If you plan on travelling this summer to the Southern Tablelands in New South Wales, Australia, expect to encounter these critters.
The Goulburn Post is reporting that millions of baby spiders appeared to be raining from the skys above earlier this month, with one frightened local resident fearing that the town has been "invaded by spiders". The newspaper also reported that another resident reported his home was "covered" in the creatures.
Ian Watson, Goulburn resident told the Goulburn Post that his house looked like it had been
Abandoned and taken over by spiders. The whole place was covered in these little black spiderlings and when I looked up at the sun it was like this tunnel of webs going up for a couple of hundred meters into the sky.
Experts say the event is an annual migration called Angel Hair.
Fox News reports that it occurs usually during May and August. Outback arachnids throw their webs up into the air, moving in large formations through the sky. The spider colonies then travel through the air and fall in masses of web and silk down to the ground, coating everything from farmlands to buildings.
Sure makes for a cool photo. I would love to visit, but not live there. How 'bout you?
