Spiders. They live around you, the sleep next to, and they hide in the corners of your room. They're considered pests by most people, but to some, then considered a delicacy. Believe or not, the strongest natural fiber known is from the silk of the Nephila spider, but that spider is nothing compared to a huge, hairy, hideous tarantula. Tarantulas have been a delicacy for years. Enjoy one of these recipes when they are hot and crispy.
