Spider Cloud

Unidentified Spider Species - Danum Valley, Malaysia

 

An arachnophobics worst nightmare? A grape fruit sized glob of small spiders each probably smaller than a sesame seed, there are likely 1000s of spiders in such a grouping. I came across a few of these spider masses during my time in Malaysia, I suspect it is the outpouring of newly hatched spiderlings from an egg sac somewhere nearby.
