Enormous 1,000ft spider web mysteriously appears overnight in Greece

Keen to see the ethereal spiderweb in Greece? Here's everything you should do near Aitoliko

Now, if you fear spiders, then it may sound like a nightmare to you. They commonly build their webs near watery habitats and some species can even walk on water, as reported by Science Alert.

The webs are filled with Tetragnatha spiders - known as "stretch spiders" for their long bodies. But this webbing is a normal occurrence and is not unsafe.

The thick, fuzzy covering comes from Tetragnatha spiders, a type of spider that frequents tropical climates, as Maria Chatzaki, a biology professor at Greece's Democritus University of Thrace, told Newsit.

Ms Chatzaki also pointed out that it is a relatively common phenomenon that occurs every couple of years.

Jackson's voiceover sets the scene. "From there, a familiar voice is heard saying QUOTE" War is a universal language. After seeing the first images from Marvel Studios' 21st film, we are now getting our first look at footage.

Local Giannis Giannakopoulos shared pictures Monday of what he described as a "strange and unprecedented spectacle" on his Facebook page, garnering dozens of shares.

She noted that the phenomena had been seen before in the region in 2003, and that the spiders would soon die off, and the web would degrade naturally, leaving the vegetation undamaged. According to Chatzaki, it's a combination of timing and opportunism. Basically, when the conditions are appropriate, these spiders get a chance to overeat and mate. Spiders have apparently picked the outskirts of the said town and coated the vast area with their webs.

An increase in the mosquito population - and thus more food for the arachnids - is also thought to have contributed to the boom in spider numbers.
