Mild. Depends on your personal reaction to it.How strong is the venom of a Mexican Red Knee tarantula? Thinking of getting one.
I´d worry more about the fangs than the hairs and venomI'd worry more about the hairs than the venom.
I'm always more worried about it stopping my heart with its cuteness. I just showed mine to my sister and even she had to agree that it has a certain appeal.I´d worry more about the fangs than the hairs and venom
I have to somewhat dissagree. My 2" male smithi will kick hairs when i "intrude". usually when ever i drop in a cricket or try to handle her to show people they are not "monsters" so it may depend on age and sex of T. And every T has its own "personality".you would really have to be messing with it before it would even attempt to flick hairs
Haha id take her off your hands but her fangs would be stuck in them.I have to disagree with you all.. My 4.5" female will throw a threat up faster than she will kick.. She is almost as vial as my P. pulcher.. I got her because of all the comments I heard about them being oh so docile... Well.. I got the evil one.. :clap:
When she does kick hairs I almost cry.. I hate the itch! As soon as the temps lower for shipping.. She is so gone!
Yeah.. LoL! I normally have my sister help me pack critters when I ship them.. She dont know it yet.. But she is packing that smithi all by her little lonesome...Haha id take her off your hands but her fangs would be stuck in them.
Seems a little on the high side. Do some shopping around first.I've just been offered a pair of Smithi's (and a female Vagans) for $250. Good deal ? They are apparently a year past 2nd instar. I'm quite keen to own a Smithi - so a pair would be great.
Thats quite a high price. You could find a Mature female for around 130ish and a mm for ehh 70ish. I think it would be a good deal if they were mature. but they wont be for another year or so.
