Advertisement This was NOT an induced bite. Got bitten about 15 minutes ago by a 16cm adult female, while I was removing her pedelings from the enclosure. Tagged on the fleshy side (inside) of my right index finger. Immediate pain and swelling, and a LOT of bone pain - my finger bones are hurting, wrist bones are hurting; even my forearm. A red rash has also developed on my right forearm. Lymph node in right armpit swollen. Mobility in the bitten finger virtually non-existent now. Will update. update: swelling on the finger seems to have increased. Rashes on forearm still present, some boneache in my hand and wrist still present. update2: some pain in my elbow now. the rash on my forearm has disappeared, swelling and redness on the bitten finger and surrounding area is also beginning to subside. update3 (close to 2 hours post-bite): almost all pain and swelling has now subsided. Interestingly, the bite from the 4cm S. alternans pedeling gave me a lot more crap than this - more pain and for a much longer duration. update4: Now this is odd. It's been about 20 hours post-bite now, and I've just got up from bed to find that the bitten finger has literally ballooned overnight. It's strange, because the finger is hugely swollen but there is little to no pain at all.
