Hehe, Cerat is just a stickler for proper spelling and grammar. But take the excellent advice from his posts and laugh at the rest (but please grow your spelling, grammar and vocabulary as well, unless you are dyslexic, in which case I recommend auto-correct. My wife did her Master's thesis on the use of auto-correct to assist dyslexic people - seriously).

With regards to the bite, pokies are among those that have the most potent venom.
What were the other Ts that you were bitten by?
With regards to allergic reaction. Since the venom is similar to that of a bee, it might also be possible to build up the effects with continuous bites as with multiple stings. Anaphylactic shock is one of the worst adverse effects to a bite / sting and is life threatening. People die from it and go into comas within minutes. So if you are allergic to bee stings, best avoid a T bite altogether. I keep my son away from my Ts as he is very allergic, I have medication always at the ready as well, in case.

These are all new world, meaning less potent venom. But I see in your previous post a different pokie also bit you without the same level of pain. The amount of venom injected will greatly affect the effects, the size of the specimens, etc.

Oceanblue was bitten by a P regalis year before last (2010) and he had severe pain for a couple of days. If you were allergic, you would be on the floor already... but if it gets any worse, go to an emergency room. Takes some anti-histamines if you have.

Yes, terrible spelling is definately one of my pet peeves. Very worrying to see where our future lies. :(

As for the bite afte handling a "hot" species, there is a wonderful saying in Afrikaans: "As jy dom is, moet jy suffer" :)
