Mutated giant wolf spiders with attached dog heads. The spider body is 3-feet in length, giving a leg span of anywhere from 6-9 feet. Barking spiders are the creation of the mad scientist Winston Chalmers. First he used a variant of his Hyde formula to create a giant spider. Next, he grafted the dog head to the spider body using his alchemical processes. Chalmers preferred large dog breeds because he also had a use for the rest of the dog (see centaur dog), but a smaller breed could be used on a smaller spider body.
