Nightmares: It's Raining Spiders In Brazil (Sort Of)

February 11, 2013



This is a video captured by 20-year-old web designer Erick Reis in Santo Antônio da Platina, Brazil of it RAINING SPIDERS. They're not actually falling from the sky though, they're just running around in their giant sheet webs hanging from the power lines. Now I'm not saying local authorities should probably flamethrower the hell out of those webs, but they should. Spiders and power lines? That's a case of some serious spider mutations just waiting to happen. And do you know how often spider mutations result in a FAVORABLE outcome? Spider Man was like, one in a million.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to THEfog, Missy M, xJeebx, Spiderwoman and A, who agrees God must have been going easy on the Egyptians with he chose a frog plague instead of spiders.

    That is freakin' insane. Time to get out the flame thrower. That web is WAY to big. Sure, there are certain spider breeds that work together to make giant ghostly white webs that look like stationary fog banks between trees and bushes (though I forget where in the world this species resides), but this doesn't look normal.

  • I can't wonder how many insects are in the area to feed all those spiders. I'll take the mosquito net making spiders any day.

  • that's cool, I really didn't need to sleep tonight anyway.

    I'm with GW on this one, Burn It All. "Thou shall not suffer a spider to live", or something like that...

  • BiggyD!!!

    I am a little surprised that GW missed the opportunity to make a pun based on the fact that the guy who filmed it is a web designer

    There are opportunities in life that come and go, and only happen once, and sometimes you miss, you dont take the chance.. You shouldnt dwell on the pass, but sometimes, in your private moments, you wonder what could of been.....

    Everytime I load geekologie today I get a blackhole exploit virus warning.

    Not ashamed to admit I would scream like a little girl if I was there

  • "run little girl run".. CS:GO terrorist.

  • Kevin

    Holy crap! Those things are freakin' huge!

  • Elak Swindell

    Actually, they're not that big, the camera just makes them look that way in the close-ups. They're probably the size of a black widow. Still, I wouldn't want one or more falling on me.

  • Anodos

    Ok, good, its just raining blackwidow sized spiders. Thats fine too.

  • WhiteEagle2

    I'm just going to hope that the camera just has a really good zoom. Not the the spiders are big.
