Evening All

We wore visiting my aunt this afternoon, after saying hello, I headed straight for the room where she keeps her tarantulas.
She has 6 plus the 2 new Tarantulas Which Her Mother in Law bought, 1X Acanthoscurria geniculata (white knee) and 1X Cyclosternum fasciatum (tiger rump)
Still very small under 1cm.

So She comes through to show me her 2 newest additions to every growing collection, so just talking, she says the lady where they got the spiders said that she must be careful as the C fasciatum bite is really nasty and can cause allot of damage to the skin.
My response was The Tiger Rump!!!???
I have 2 of them and the only thing I get on a regularly bases in uitracting hairs and that as far as it goes apart from the itch :S

I did some Goggling and only found this topic C fasciatum bite did not find any Bite reports on these spider.
As far as I'm concerned they are not an aggressive tarantula, they are a bit skittish and defensive in regards to flicking of uitracting hairs.

I now it all depends on the spider doing the ejecting/ dry bite
But would the venoum of the C fasciatum be that bad, for such a small spider??
Or does the lady know what she is talking about or is she just giving the wrong information about this Tarantula.

Never heard of their venom being unusually bad, not likely IMO...

You can take an Aphonopelma to crickets but you can't make it eat!

The question is, whether or not the lady providing said information to your aunt, used Scientific or common names.

In my opinion as Taki's I would not worry too much about a C fasciatum bite.

However, symptoms vary from person to person depending on age, state of health, proneness to allergic reactions and the lot...

The Said lady, used common names = Tiger rump

I just wanted to find out information as I was a bit unsure as this is the first time I have heard this about the spider :P and before I tell my Aunt that the women is incorrect and she does not have to worry.

My Aunt does not hold her spiders, they live in the tanks they get given food water and nice tanks, so chances of a spider biting her is slim to say the less.

I don't foresee any trouble. I'd say go ahead, provide your aunt with the facts, and the results of your research.

I'd say she's got nothing to be concerned about.

could she mean "thai tiger" ?
or a Tigerspider, Poecilotheria ?

Anyway, even very mild venom spiders can lead to secondary infections
