In the town of Santo Antônio da Platina in the south of Brazil, the Anelosimus eximius spiders make “sheet webs” together in the late afternoons to capture insects. This species is very sociable and cooperative, which we think means they’ll say hello to you before launching their swarm attack. These spiders weave their own section of a sheet in the trees, and then they combine them with the sheets from other spiders. The result is an enormous web across the sky populated with thousands of spiders as seen in the video below and OH JESUS WHY DOES THIS EXIST?
WHOEVER CATCHES THE MOST SPIDERS IN THEIR MOUTH IS GETTING MARRIED NEXT!
What? It’s traditional.
