Spider Goats Make Silk Milk… No Seriously
This might just be the weirdest story you see all week! The BBC reports that Utah State University has successfully given goats spider genes so that they create a Milk that has an extra protein when spun creates Silk.
Why you could want to do this I have no idea but it shows the ability to cross DNA in different species. I guess now we just have to decide if we'd like to fly or super human strength or maybe breath underwater... Is this how we get X-Men?
Their saying the goats have produced a large amount of Spider Silk which is among the strongest substances known to man.. Ok maybe Spider Man not X-Men.
