I had read somewhere that the venom of Cyriopagopus paganus was possibly medically significant. Has anyone else heard this or know the scoop? I'm thinking about purchasing one today and would appreciate any information on them and their bite.
Thanks!

IMHO, they are old world sp. and i believe these are from Asia. I have not heard of their venom being medically significant at all. But maybe someone who has this sp. has more information then me, hope this helped!
EDIT: They are also burrowers and are a fast aggressive T! Good Luck!

Haplopelma sp. "longipedum"

It could also be Haplopelma sp. "longipedum".
I'm not sure if these are the same tarantula.

If you can, post a pic. They are two different sp. They pretty much need the same care, and as i said above, asian t's old world aggressive!
Good Luck!

rknralf,

I believe you're right about it also being called Haplopelma sp. "longipedum"I've got one, although I've heard things about it having a particularly nasty bite, I have yet to get bitten by mine
