A Sky Full Of Spiders To Make You Question Everything About Nature

The astonishing sight was captured on video by Santo Antonio da Platina, a town about 250 miles west of Sao Paulo, by local resident Erick Reis, a 20 year old web designer.

‘I was shooting an engagement party for some friends of mine and I saw the spiders when I was leaving, now in the late afternoon,’ he told local TV station TV450000, which posted the footage to YouTube.

The video reveals thousands of then moving up and down webs, appearing to fall from the sky, which is extremely rare in the spider world.


Scientists have found around 40,000 species of spiders around the world – but only 23 species are scattered around the world that are known to swarm, like ants or bees.
