Massive 1,000ft spider web appeared overnight in Greece

This isn't an ordinary spider web, not even a very large one - it covers green landscape in a think blanket of webbing, giving a creepy wake-like appearance.

Warmer weather conditions in Greece have led to a unique 300-metre long spider-web covering a beach in Aitoliko, Acarnania.

Greek local and photographer Giannis Giannakopoulos captured stunning photographs and a video of the webs.

She also said that the spiders are not a danger to humans, and will not cause any damage to the vegetation. Though those with phobias may find the sudden presence frightening, experts say these spiders aren't unsafe to humans and were likely just taking advantage of favorable mating conditions.

They are known to build webs near watery habitats such as the lagoon - creating mating dens.

Sadly, the eight-legged architects will soon die off, leaving the web to degrade naturally.
