I know that some, maybe many, of you have had luck handling A. geniculata. Coloring-wise, they're striking (if one likes the contrast of white-on-black), and they get to be nice and big, but they seem to have urticating hairs that would make a mosquito itch! And yet, I've seen photos of them, big suckers, being handled like poseys on a young prom-queen's wrist, with no apparent side-effects. Do any of you have any handling-wisdom to share? (Or horror stories?). Is it just that some people are allergic and others aren't? Just wondering.
