But seeing this massive spider web will not make you think of any tine spider! And that too just before Halloween! Facebook users commented on the post on how the web can easily ‘catch’ a person. Spiders are not everyone’s favorite, but most users appreciated this web design. Many joked about how we always blame Australia for such creepy crawlers when back home, this is the size of spider webs!

Orb weavers are fairly common spiders, usually, their webs are not this big. If you’re a fan of all things spooky, finding a massive spider web just in time for Halloween, really sets the mood, doesn’t it?
