Thanks for helping me decide!
I agree with Jon here, if Poecilotheria venom causes such extreme pain in adults (and that last bitereport was from regalis, don't remember the name of the guy that got bit), than it could be lifethreatening for someone with a much smaller body mass (the concentration of venom would be much higher). If you really want one, be sure that your hands never go near them. We'd all hate to lose the Psalmopoeus Lover to a Poecilotheria...Originally posted by Big Dragonfly
However, when was the last time that you came across a pokie bite report on a kid? I haven't seen one. What if the venom is too strong for your body to metabolize?
