|Oh my, how peaceful.|
According to the National Post;
"The Australian Museum’s entomology collections manager Graham Milledge said the spiders’ behavior was known as ballooning, and was typical after spiders are forced to flee from floods.
“They often do it as a way of dispersing and getting into a new area,” Milledge told the news.com.au website. “In an event like this, they are just trying to escape the floods.”
Sydney’s Taronga Zoo said Australia’s spider population has boomed in the wet weather"
Honestly, Australia is a big place, with a lot of wide open spaces, hundreds and hundreds of miles without anything or anyone, and they decide to stop at this guys house and set up shop. Why? Maybe they are just jerks. Maybe, Australian creatures think they own the place. Perhaps they just think it is a lovely place with a wonderful view.
Remember, when planning your next trip to Australia don't go during rainy seasons, and whatever you do don't go visit this guy.
