Foot Spider Web Blankets Entire Lagoon In Greece

The warmer climate conditions in western Greece have led to a freaky phenomenon.

Maria Chatzaki, professor of molecular biology and genetics at Democritus University of Thrace, told Newsit Greece's high temperatures are creating the flawless climate for reproduction. Spiders have apparently picked the outskirts of the said town and coated the vast area with their webs.

The web was created by Tetragnatha spiders, a type of spider that falls in the long-jawed orb weaver classification.

Although the event takes place every three to five years, an increase in the mosquito population - a staple in the spiders' diets - combined with this summer's hot and humid conditions are believed to have contributed to the extraordinary size of the 2018 webs.

Now Aitoliko formed the ideal conditions for mating.

Such an incident is not completely unheard of in Aitoliko as the phenomenon is known to be seasonal.

Fortunately, while it is quite a freaky sight to those who are unfamiliar to it, the spider party isn't harmful to the people or the environment. The spiders are likely from the genus Tetragnatha which are commonly known as stretch spiders due to their elongated bodies.

Speaking to Greek news websites, molecular biologist Maria Chatzaki said that the spiders are not unsafe to humans and she not be feared. They frequent regions all over the world, but often stick to habitats near the water.

Sadly, the eight-legged architects will soon die off, leaving the web to degrade naturally.
