:? just curious...never seen before with any of my pedes,,,but my viet. orange leg..s.s.de hanni is dripping venom all over her critter keeper... she is eating a cricket but has the cricket pinned up against the side of the cage. and there is a stream of milky liquid running down the side...is it the venom?
after it dries is it still as toxic?
anyone seen this before?
thanks in advance

No, sounds like the crickets inside fluids. When ever i kill or squish one, milky white stuff comes out like you described....

I wouldnt have thought it was venom, purely because they cant store that much in there glands, i would guess if it was venom that there would be something seriously wrong with it.
As its eating though, i wouldnt worry about it. just check and see if he does it again some other time.

Curiously enough when moving one of my S. suspinipes I witnessed it bite the forcep and spray a stream of venom onto the glass three inches away.
