The next dominant species of planet earth. Prepare yourselves, humans: your days are numbered (I for one hail our new spider-goat overlords.)

I've always found "This Day in History" websites interesting. Many people do, apparently, because there certainly seem to be a lot of them out there.

Perhaps Metafilter should consider adding a similar feature.

Am I the only one with an image of goats on a futuristic battlefield? Standing up on two legs while spider web shoots out their udders. "Feel the wrath of the goats!"

We discussed this last week, here. Love the wording of your post, though.

The goats don't yet realize that they have super-powered milk. Nobody tell them.

I'd hate the be the baby goat that gets a mouth-full of mother's spider-milk.

Mrs Parker : "Boy, what are you doing in there?"
Peter : "Just kidding, mom!"

On preview : that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, does it?

As if goats weren't already agile climbers. Now they'll be chewing the ivy off walls, nibbling the moss under the eaves, and staring in your upper windows with yellow demon eyes.

So, suppose these buggers are safe for release into the wild. What about smuggling some breeding pairs to poor countries where people depend on traditional herding? Granny could knit bullet-proof vests in traditional patterns.
