I got up the nerve to test the fury of the orange bitey thing I got the other day. Here are some pics of making contact with an usumbara. First pic....it begins(the black spots are ink stains, btw):

:eek: OI ! Wow, congrats. I have yet to get up the nerve to hold my lovely Smithi. She gets scared and she BOLTS. She is very fast. Im a little nervous of her. Maybe I ought to try that technique of letting her make her way onto my hand. :)

Not hard at all....she went back in in a very ladylike fashion. She didn't even bare a fang during the whole episode.

you are a brave girl!
For some reason, that is the ONLY spider that terrifies me. My C crayshawi doesn't hold a candle to an orange bitey thing when it comes to scaring me LOL!
The only time I would hold one is accidentally :)

If my orange bitey thing senses me anywhere in the room she stands up, leans back and bears her fangs!

I love the new "common name" for this species.... LOBT, it is SO fitting!!

There would be no way anyone could get me to handle either of my aggressive spiders.
