Recent floods in Australia led to the appearance of spiders and wallabies searching a shelter
Firstly there were fires, and now the floods … It was a hard year for Australia and all nature and animals. Currently, they are trying to survive after heavy rain that recently hit New South Wales.
Reports of the appearance of spiders in people’s homes have spread on social media. During the worst flooding in the past 10 years, about a meter of rain fell in some areas of New South Wales. And according to weather forecasts, more rain is expected. This may force thousands of people to leave their homes.
One person from a farm in Kinchela Creek shared a picture of a swarm of spiders who were moving over a field. He was afraid that they might all end up in his house. And in Maxville, Melanie Williams watched literally thousands of spiders climbed over the fence of her garden.
Experts say that insects, like humans and animals, try to find shelter and climbing higher ground. Animals that live on the earth can no longer be there, the professors explain.
But there were also some brave stories of animal saving after fires harmed and killed around three billion creatures.
In Sydney, a wallaby and several other birds that belonged to Paul Zammit were saved by his best friend when his house was drowned with water. Fortunately, all the animals survived, but they got wet. And on Monday, boat rescuers were able to rescue 20 dogs from a water-threatened kennel. Their owners left them at the nursery when they were told to evacuate.
Livestock on farms was also trapped as rivers overflowed their banks and fields turned to mud. The cows were up to their ears in the water. Out of 85 lost cows, rescuers saved 11 cows and two calves.
And members of the surf club freed a cow that was on the beach and successfully transferred it to the paddock. The inhabitants of Gilgandra wish that the rain will gradually decrease, and the rodents that have attacked their city will find shelters.
