Giant spider-web cloaks Greece coast

Spiderwebs cover areas of greenery along the Greek coastline

A spider web spanning almost 1,000ft has appeared in Greece, where locals say unusually high mosquito activity took place before the web appeared. They commonly build their webs near watery habitats and some species can even walk on water, as reported by Science Alert.

Most people encounter spider webs one at a time, maybe a handful or so in a single day.

Giannis Giannakopoulos posted this video of the spider web to YouTube.

Scientists say the arachnids are merely enjoying the attractive weather and availability of food, taking the opportunity to "party".

Speaking to Greek news websites, molecular biologist Maria Chatzaki said that the spiders are not risky to humans and she not be feared.

The freakish sight was the work of spiders from the genus Tetragnatha - otherwise known as stretch spiders due to their elongated bodies.

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.

Sadly, the eight-legged architects will soon die off, leaving the web to degrade naturally. The coastal town's temperature, humidity, and abundance of mosquitoes create the ideal mating conditions for the spiders. Basically, when the conditions are appropriate, these spiders get a chance to overeat and mate. Their large and thick webs are good not just for mating, but also for both nesting and catching prey.
