Australia has always been famous for its special and unique wildlife, as species can be found here that are not found anywhere else in the world. However, these diverse animals and plants can sometimes be very frightening, especially for those who are not used to them.
However, a recent incident shocked even the locals: A According to a BBC report In the Gippsland region of Victoria, spiders spun huge, powerful webs that covered a very large area – and provided a frightening sight.
This was behind the strange phenomenon
Vast areas of veiled cobwebs appeared in the area after days of rain and flooding. Experts say the veil was created by a survival tactic known as “bloating” in which spiders cast their webs so they can reach higher areas with them. According to Dr. Ken Walker, Senior Curator of Entomology at Museum Victoria, it is possible that millions of spiders have weaved their webs in the surrounding trees.
The locals had already witnessed a lot of weirdness, and it wasn’t the first time they encountered a huge spider web, but now they were also surprised at how extensive this phenomenon was. Most of them, however, were not afraid, but found the veiled trees and meadows to be more beautiful and dazzling. There were places where cobwebs cut a mile along the way, and even the strongest winds did not break them, making arthropods a very durable sanctuary. However, experts say the fruits of their hard work actually began to unravel over the weekend.
