Social media stunned by spiderweb large enough to trap a human

A photo of a colossal spiderweb in Missouri has social media talking. On Sept. 30, the Missouri Department of Conservation shared a photo of the monstrosity on Facebook, . where it was shared nearly 3,000 times. The image shows the web stretched between two trees. The web’s size suggests it’s large enough to perhaps trap a young child. although the department did not disclose the web’s exact measurements. Still, Facebook users had a lot to say. “I’d freak out seeing this, knowing there is a spider the size of my hand nearby,” one person wrote. Others expressed their amazement. “Beautiful piece of work,” one commented. “Amazing how something can be so beautiful and so scary at the same time”
