It's like a scene straight out of a horror flick: park rangers in Lake Tawakoni State Park, Texas, found a giant communal spider web that spans 200-yard (183 m):
If you hate creepy-crawlies, you might want to avoid Lake Tawakoni State Park, where a 200-yard stretch along a nature trail has been blanketed by a sprawling spider web that has engulfed seven large trees, dozens of bushes and even the weedy ground.
But if you hate mosquitoes, you might just love this bizarre web.
"At first, it was so white it looked like fairyland," said park Superintendent Donna Garde. "Now it's filled with so many mosquitoes that it's turned a little brown.
"There are times you can literally hear the screech of millions of mosquitoes caught in those webs."
