Baby spiders appear to be raining down from the sky in Australia.
“Millions” of baby spiders have been pouring down in the Southern Tablelands region of Australia, blanketing the area in webs, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.
One resident said it looked like his house was “abandoned and taken over by spiders.”
Researchers told The Sydney Morning Herald that the area may be seeing a mass migration of baby spiders. Spiders, especially young ones, often release a stream of silk as they jump, and they can be taken with the breeze and carried away. Mass migration can result in a large amount of what’s called gossamer or “Angel Hair,” which is the silk produced by spiders.
Some experts say that once the weather warms, the spiders will disperse.
