It Is Raining Spiders in Brazil-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Rumors of spiders falling to the earth from the sky are flying all over the World Wide Web. There are concerns that these arachnids are venomous or even worse, black widow spiders.
It is not raining spiders but there was a video found on YouTube, as well as a fan page on Facebook that documented something not often witnessed in places other than the tropical regions of South America.
What appeared to be raining spiders in Santo Antonio da Platna, Brazil was actually a colony of communal spiders spinning a web curtain, which was waving in the wind. The creepy critters are not believed to be harmful to humans but they were working together as a team to build a web big enough to catch large prey, according to a February 9, 2013 article by Fox News.
Video found on YouTube
There is a video on-line, which I saw on Facebook, that shows power lines with spiders (thousands of them) hanging from them and in the trees…everywhere. They look like black widows! A friend of mine thinks it was done by some kind of computer trick but I don’t think so. The people shooting the video are speaking a foreign language…Portuguese maybe? It may be a South American video…Brazil maybe. I just want to know where this video was made and if it’s real.
