Spider Swarm Makes For The Most Terrifying Vine Ever (VIDEO)

Is it a particularly hirsute caterpillar? That clump of hair that’s been clogging up your shower?

No, it’s even worse.

It’s a heaving mass of spiders – or an order of arachnids known as harvestmen – if you want to be specific.

Never, ever do this

In a scene reminiscent of 1990’s horror comedy Arachnophobia, the mass of creepy crawlies explodes into a writhing ball of legs upon being prodded.


It brings to mind a similarly horrifying incident in Brazil where hundreds of spiders rained from the skies, in an occurrence one biologist described as “normal”.

Yeah, normal in HELL.

H/t to Us vs th3m.
