or a Tigerspider, Poecilotheria ?
Anyway, even very mild venom spiders can lead to secondary infections


It was the tiger rump they were talking about.
Since then I have heard it another 4 times, that their venom is really potent.
People are talking about the spiders venom potency.
Which they are saying is pretty high. noob

I know every one might have a different reaction and all those other kinds of things that come from being bitten even secondary infection, but talking in the general sense of getting bitten, the general sense of the spiders venom, is this spiders venom as hectic as people have said it is?

Or someone is giving miss information.
As I said, there are not many bite reports on these spiders so no real information on there venom.
So until someone gets bitten it will be one of those things that is up in the air.

i would think, being a new world Tarantula, they would have relatively mild venom.
anybody have a C.fasciatum that fancies being a guinea pig test dummy ?

When searching bite reports I found many reports on pokies, haplos, centipedes and even curlys. I would imagine if C.faciatum was a nasty biter we would see many more reports. As it is I could only find one report, dated 2004, fully grown tiger rump, three bites to the wrist, mild symptoms, all over in about 2 hours. Still thiink the greatest damage would be to the spider.

Very interesting, I had one of these, never bit me but was aggressive as hell, would always attack the paintbrush if it was time for rehousing. Scary little T, I think that people assume they are very venomous because of the copper coloration as coloration is almost always seen as venomous by people who ado not have the appropriate knowledge about the subject. I think more reasearch is in order but I also think that the venom won't be that potent. Will see if I can find any info

Do elaborate Sunny, is it gone ? Have you found it ?

In my opinion all Tarantula bites are deadly !

If one bites me, I will violently retract and react and probably scream like a girl , and in all the commotion the spider could be fatally injured. It is good to always be careful , never get too relaxed , as always when working with any wild animal. Don't drive drunk and don't get bitten. :whistle:

Africa is a tough country. When the going gets tough, we get going.
