So this is called a rat king. It’s a rare phenomenon where rats become intertwined by their tails. Largest known rat king is 22 rats tangled together. Kind of awesome, kind of sad, and very gross. Don’t be alarmed though, it’s a hoax. Thank goodness for that.
One of my favorite videos on youtube. For all I care spiders everywhere can curl up and die but I thoroughly enjoy this music and animation. ((Note: I know the important role spiders and arachnids play in the complex structure nature set up, but I freaking hate them. ))
