Spiders in Greece – level 2

01-10-2018 07:00

In western Greece, thousands of spiders made a 300-metre web near a lagoon. The webs are beautiful and creepy at the same time, as they cover trees and boats.

It is possible that there are so many spiders because there are more mosquitoes. The spiders are very small and are not dangerous to people or plants.

A biology professor said that the spiders are mating under the cloudy web and will soon die because of incoming cooler weather.

Difficult words: lagoon (a lake that is near other lakes), creepy (scary), mate (make babies), incoming (coming).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
