Quite interesting. I do think I will be staying away from a spider that looks like these guys if I ever come across one.

Such a time consuming process. Much patience it takes to do something like this. Kudos to those who collected the spiders and the silk.

Not too soon probably, not on a large scale anyway. It's time and labor intensive, it's hard to find people willing to work with bitey spiders, and the spiders refuse to be "farmed" and battle when kept together.

So in conclusion, never. BUT many corporations are doing things like putting spider dna in cow dna and making spider silk-like threads.... in.... SOME WAY? I have no idea how. I am not a scientist or even a smart guy. I try to be smart but really, I'm just loud lol


This is true, genetic cross-breeding has opened the door for this.

They're also making a cow-man from what I read too. Guess Nightmare Hall in Dulce got bored, huh?
