New Zealand Park visitors caught something strange, when they saw towards the green field they found out the field was covered with silk webs, instead of flowers. It was like thousands of tiny spiders had covered it with a silky thin blanket by their silk web.
On the April 16, Tracey Maris notices something strange about the scene from the park, whey she enjoying her day with her family. And she started to capture the video out of curiosity. What she recorded it’s beautiful but still strange, the video footage was showing the gently rolling silk waves, like someone wants to cover the field gently while protecting it. This silk gentle web blanket was around 98 feet (30 meters) long and about 7 to 10 feet wide (approx 2 to 3 meters). Those strange webs were covering the ground near a soccer field at the Gordon Spratt Reserve in suburban Papamoa; it is around the Bay of Plenty on New Zealand’s eastern coast.
The tiny spiders were noticed when Maris and her family started to explore the webs. That was the time when they noticed, there were some little black thing present on the top. Those little black things were spiders and in number they were thousands. Well, it true they give a big scary moment to Maris and her family because they didn’t expect it.
The silk web blanket spotted on a recently formed tsunami evacuation mound by Maris, she reported- she noticed something bright glistening which was coming from the top of the mound. It’s like the hill was sparkling.
It seems, the spiders were attracted towards the elevated mound when seeking for the higher ground especially after recent flooding from Cyclone Cook, which is happened earlier this week.
But the hard efforts of thousands of spiders didn’t last long. It looked like this unusual blanket torn by a dog, which ran across the field not long after Maris shot her video and remained webs, was wiped away by the thunderstorm. Maris reported, when she came back to the park next day, there was no sign of remained webs…
