On Saterday May 17, 2003 my Dad got bit by this spid! It was 2" in size, the bite occured from my day showing off the T to the many relatives over our house yesterday, i advised it to first get onto my hand, but he didnt listen, he got the spider in his hand and started walking around and poking at it, the T got defensive and bit him! He experienced some sorreness for a coulple hours. The symptoms laster 3-4 hours as it stinged and was only a dry bite. And what was surprisingly one puncture wound as it only bit him with one fang! (weird). There were no lingering effects thank goodness! I will get a picture as soon as possible!
