SOUNDBITE: (English) Marge Wiley, Tourist, Vox Pop: "It was such a phenomenon to know that this was in your back yard and it's something that is not normal. I just wanted to see it, I wanted to see for myself."11. Close-up of web12. SOUNDBITE: (English) Cheryl Vincent, Tourist, Vox Pop: "The spiders themselves are just little, tiny spiders, you'd think something that has this big of a web would be one of those big ones like the black and yellow ones, but these are just quarter inch (6.3 millimetres), half inch (1.2 centimetres), if that."13. Mid of web in treesSTORYLINE:A massive spider web, stretching nearly 200 yards (182 metres), is blanketing the trees, shrubs and ground along a trail in a North Texas State park.Entomologists, fascinated by the sprawling web, are debating its origin and rarity.Spider experts say the web is not likely to be the result of the work of one giant spider, but instead, social cobweb spiders, which work together.Or it could be the result of a mass dispersal in which the arachnids spin webs to spread out from one another.Park Ranger Mike McCord explained that the presence of such a high amount of spiders and spider webs is due in part, to the abundance of food in the area:"There's plenty of food here", he said. "It's a great food source and even though this spider group is not considered social they are tolerating each other," McCord saidOfficials at Lake Tawakoni State Park say the massive web is a big attraction for some visitors."It was such a phenomenon to know that this was in your back yard and it's something that is not normal. I just wanted to see it, I wanted to see for myself," said Marge Wiley, a Texan tourist who lives not far from the State Park.Another tourist, Cheryl Vincent, was amazed by the fact that the spiders that made the web were quite small."The spiders themselves are just little, tiny spiders, you'd think something that has this big of a web would be one of those big ones like the black and yellow ones, but these are just quarter inch (6.3 millimetres), half inch (1.2 centimetres), if that," she said. Entomologists disagree on just how rare such massive webs are. They expect the web to last until autumn, when the spiders will start dying off.You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/you...
