Locals in the Brazilian town of Santo Antônio da Platina got a rather creepy shock when spiders were spotted hanging overhead on electrical lines.
Web designer Erick Reis posted footage of the critters which showed them squatting on webs they had made on the power lines.
The 20-year-old told Brazil’s G1 he filmed the strange occurrence on the way home from a friend’s engagement party.
A local biologist confirmed that the species of spider was Anelosimus eximius, which are known for congregating in massive colonies.
The YouTube video (above) lasts for over four minutes but for some people that may be four minutes too long.
