Travelers who are looking to see something a little bit on the creepy side should take the first plane to Waga Waga, Australia. In a bit of evolutionary wonder, the town has recently been hit with major flooding. In response to the flooding, the towns millions of spiders have banded together to build massive webs across huge swaths of sticks and bushes. Some of them cover entire fields.
The strange spiderweb blankets were first reported by the BBC. According to the news outlet, approximately 9,000 people in Wagga Wagga been forced to evacuate due to flooding. Wagga Wagga is a popular stopover for people heading between Adelaide, Sydney or Melbourne.
The spider web blankets are a wonder that scientists are having a difficult time explaining. Score one for Darwin.
