"Spider goats" really exist.

The Canadian company Nexia has produced goats that are genetically modified to be part spider.

The genetic modification causes these spider goats to produce spider silk protein in their milk that is collected, purified and spun into super strong fibers.

These fibers are apparently more durable than Kevlar, more stretchable than nylon, and stronger than steel.

This company sees nothing wrong with messing with nature to harvest a substance that has very valuable industrial and military applications.....
