i was holding my little bugger of a rosie last night and i think she started to get a little out of sorts b/c when i tried to move her, she started flicking her hairs at me. but my question is this: i may just be a little alergic or sumthin... but a couple of times when ive held her and she has bombed me.... my hand iches like crazy! How r Rosie hairs compared to others in their ichy hairs? Does anyone get like this with rosie hairs?

I think different genus's affect different people, and even species within a genus can affect people differently. For me, it's the B smithi, L parahybana, and G pulchra that really make me itch. OTOH, I can take a B albopilosum, let it walk all over me, and not be affected in the least.
So, for me, only some Brachypelmas, and some Grammostola affect me that way.
I am too leery of hairs and my reactions to even go NEAR a T blondi!
