    And while the venom of the Poecilotheria rajaei is not lethal to humans, there

        What does this have to do with politics ? I suggest you keep your "chit-chat" regulated to your social media or blog. If you feel compelled to share it, then put it in Open Jam where the forum isn't specifically purposed. I won't report it this time, but if you persist, I'll be forced to in the future. Consider this your last warning about these nonsensical threads.

        She's Lasiodora parahybana, the Brazilian Salmon Pink Bird-eating Tarantula and should get to have about a 9 inch legspan when fully grown. Fascinating creatures to observe.

        A friend of mine had a Tarantula. She stopped eating and anchored her feet to the ground with her web.

        He thought she was dying, but on our return to his house after a night out we were shocked to see what appeared to be 2 Tarantulas in her tank. Closer inspection revealed that she had shed her skin.

        One of the freakiest things I've seen :catsurprised:
