Officials with the Big Bend Ranch State Park in Texas captured an eight-legged creature “swimming” across a small body of water: a tarantula.

“Did you know that tarantulas can ‘swim?’ With their legs acting as paddles, they can row across water,” the Big Bend Ranch State Park post with a Facebook video.

The video doesn’t show if the hastily moving spider made it across successfully, but the Big Bend Ranch State Park confirmed that it did. They explaining the tarantula used the “current to help drift to the shore”

According to a researcher with the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom, these arachnids typically only take to water when forced, such as being chased or falling in.
