One of the around 5,000 spiders bred at a spider farm in Batuco, some 30 km north of Santiago on May 22, 2013. Orellana’s farm breeds a species of spiders (Grammostola mollicoma) --which despite its big size are harmless for humans-- and exports them with great success to Europe, Asia and The U.S.A. to be kept as pets.
