Ok folks, seeings how I'm about to move one of these, and in a week or two introduce a male, does anyone out there know much about haplopelma venom? From the reports I've read, and been told about second hand, it seems to be mostly local in pain and such. Anyone had any further effects than swelling with a bite from a Haplopelma, but not gotten around to adding it to the bite forum yet? Anyone know the structural breakdown of it?

I've come across a few bad bite reports from Haps -- bad pain and severe swelling are what come to mind -- maybe muscle cramping.

just wondering, i know its down to personality, but what is the temperament overall for haplopelmas? My minax is as tame as anything.
