My cats like to eat spiders and thinks it tastes like squid or octopus. The exterrior shell on insects and spiders are not alive like the spider within. So the living parts of spiders are actually encased in a external structure that allows mobility and life. Spiders molt like crabs to increase their overall size. It is probable that we will someday breed spiders for our food, as the Chinese do already and in much larger sizes. Considering the possibilities is a voyage into the ICK! factor. But then too, as a child, I remember my first taste of sugar was that it tasted repulsively bitter.
