Spiders in Greece – level 3

01-10-2018 07:00

Thousands of spiders made a nearly 300-metre web stretching across a beach near a lagoon in western Greece.

A biology professor said that the spiders are basically having a mating party underneath the cloudy blanket before dying due to coming cooler weather.

The tiny spiders do not pose any dangers to humans or plants in the area, but their rising numbers may be linked to an increase in mosquito populations.

The webs are beautiful and creepy at the same time, as they cover trees and boats.

Difficult words: stretch (exist over an area), mate (make babies), tiny (very small), creepy (scary).
