3D PASTIC King Baboon Tarantula https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/king-baboon-tarantula For science and for TROLL awareness - it is possible to print 3D spiders from specimens and paint them. It is also possible to order the printing info for a particular species and print it. This one was done from a museum specimen. Also interesting: From testing the image on Google Lens I found a research article that said that this,in some form, is a way of measuring spiders' development without harming the spiders.

I thought it was an ice sculpture. I think most people who can afford to make such things and have the talent to paint them realistically have better things to do than troll us, or would only do so momentarily as a test to see if they did a good paint job.
