A massive, communal spider web that thousands of spiders shared has been washed away…
It is a sad day for spider-lovers.
Most of the webs that made national news are gone in Lake Tawakoni State Park â€” washed and blown away by the storms that hit Hunt County on Friday.
But that didnâ€™t stop visitors from flocking to the state park Saturday to get a glimpse of the remnants of what entomologists have described as a â€œvery rareâ€ occurrence â€” thousands of spiders co-existing and building spider webs along a 200-yard stretch of the park.
Fridayâ€™s storms have displaced thousands of spiders, who appear to be frantically rebuilding their webs, said Donna Garde, park superintendent.
â€œTheyâ€™re all (still) there,â€ Garde said. â€œThey are just not in those great webs. Theyâ€™re hungry. Theyâ€™re building furiously.â€
Doesn’t that last sentence sound ominously creepy? They’re hungry. They’re building furiously. And they’re coming to get you!!!
