So I was packing some inverts I sold today and the usually calm Chilobrachys Huahini I sold decided to flip out, just missed my finger and went on an obstacle course around my furniture lol, but I was wondering, seeing as I've never actually been tagged by a T before, how bad is a bite from one of these?

Tarantula bite

I once had a fully grown chillie and whilst wearing 5ml thick rubber gloves she
Bit the end of my finger,it was like being bit by a hamster ,but without the gloves,also i shook my hand in panic,lol,and she held on lol trust me you dont want to get bit by any t,bites with ts are more mechanical than poisonous,
Unless your allergic!

I have read bite reports that claim that the asian spiders have the worst of T bites, I to have never been tagged in 26 years, but if I am ever bitten I kind of want it to be an asian or african species, so that I know that if I ever got bit again it wouldn't be as bad as that first one!!!!

tarantula are venomous not poisonous. The delivery method is different.
