'Acromantulas are a wizard-bred species, clashing with the law on the Ban for Experimental Breeding.'
when they were first bred I dont think that the ban on experimental breeding existed
You are right. According to 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, they are made years before the law exists. I will be back with the correct number after I find the book......
Acromantula Venom vs. Eggs
I could be wrong here, but I believe it says in the book that "Acromantula eggs are classified as Class A Non-Tradeable Goods", not the venom as it is said in the article. Thanks,

- Yep, definitely eggs, as Slughorn said that selling Venom could fetch quite an amount of Galleons. Slughorn has a reputation too good to be ruined by trading anything illegally IMHO. Tonicquill 16:31, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
It's stated that the eggs are the size of beach balls, and I'm assuming the resulting baby spider would be about the same size, but in Chamber of Secrets Harry and Ron follow a trail of spiders that are tiny... Caraxian (talk) 21:47, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
- I'd always taken that to mean real spiders, not Acromantula which are a different thing altogether. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 21:49, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
- Same here. Hagrid told them to "follow the spiders" and they were following the actual spiders that had been fleeing the school. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:52, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
