In this horrific film, directed by Protein Channels, you will see these large African spiders trying to leave the highly populated forest, but there's a major problem. The spiders have no passageways or tunnels to get out of the forest, so they're on a major quest to find these passageways and find the way to a less populated area so they can feel "equilibrium." Watch as these monstrous spiders find the path to a more symmetric enviornment

WAIT!! What is facilitated diffusion?

-Well, some molecules are too large to pass by regular diffusion; therefore they need protein channels to allow them to pass through the cell membrane and reach equilibrium! Cool right?
