Tarantula Migration

Why did the tarantula cross the road? Well, no, not just to get to the other side. Fall in the desert is the time of year when male tarantulas go on a march to seek out females. It's not that they particularly look for roads to cross, but because there are so many of them in such a large expanse of territory, there are bound to be some of them that come across roads. (Some of them can cover 50 miles in their lusty trek.)
