In case you don’t have enough nightmare fuel, try moving to the Brazilian town of Espírito Santo do Dourado. There, residents that the sky is regularly filled with spiders, which rain down on unsuspecting people like some kind of demon weather.
A video of the phenomenon was captured by 14-year-old João Pedro Martinelli Fonseca, who was visiting his grandparents in the town located in the southern state of Minas Gerais, just north of Rio de Janeiro. There, apparently it’s common to see a sky full of small, black dots as spiders fall from the sky. Take a look:
This sort of behavior is reportedly common for this particular species of orb-weaving spider native to the southern half of South America. On humid nights, these spiders work together to weave giant webs spanning dozens of feet and reaching from tree to tree. In this video, the spiders aren’t really falling from the sky so much as hanging out there, waiting for prey.
Not that this is any less terrifying.
