ok was watching jeff corwin animal adventure a while back with my girl, when he was talking about spiders and bit of information caught my interest, he said that back in the dinosaure age spiders and other arachnid were 4-5 times bigger then they are now because of the increased levels of oxegen in the atmosphere. since they obsorb oxegen through their exoskeleton they were able to grow much larger. so i was thinking, and wonder if you could somehow condense the oxegen and isolate a spider and feed him the condensed oxegen, would he grow? we could create giant spiders, and then they might have a more useful purpous such as increased spider silk production, or heck even as a pet giant spider would be cool!
