BRAZIL – Hey, look! Is that a Spiderman or is that a spider, man?
Hundreds of spiders got together in Santo Antonio da Platina, Brazil, to weave a really big web. These spiders have an official Latin name, but we’ll just call them what most people call them, the ‘social spiders.’
They’re pretty common in the tropics of South America. They work in groups to make webs big enough to capture large insects. Because, after all, it takes a village to eat a big bug.
We’re not sure why these guys chose to put up their web around some power lines. Must be their version of a ‘social network.’
