A Giant Spider-Web Covers An Entire Shoreline In Aitoliko, 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.

The Tetragnatha spiders - known as "stretch spiders" - are known for building enormous webs for mating when it's hot and humid.

The handsome Grecian beaches have been transformed into an eerie landscape overrun by spiders as a massive spider web stretches across the entire shoreline. According to Chatzaki, it's a combination of timing and opportunism. "This phenomenon has arisen from a population explosion of this spider".

Underneath these huge webs, Chatzaki says that there are populations of spiders mating, according to Live Science.

Some of the locals attribute the sudden emergence of the spiders to the rise in mosquitoes in the days preceding the phenomenon. Spiders have apparently picked the outskirts of the said town and coated the vast area with their webs.
