    There are no tarantulas native to the US (that is so hard to type with a straight face). Found this bit of super misinformation while searching for info on arachnids in Victor Valley:
    http://www.chacha.com/question/are-there-tarantulas-in-victorville

    I've found some hilarious misinformation but that one, ohmygosh. :laugh: Almost as good is a related question found below titled "Where can you find tarantulas" with someone informing them that tarantulas are to be found in Africa and Asia (inferring no where else in the process).

    What tidbits of misinformation have you found lately?

  3. Oh we've got whole threads dedicated to LPS misinformation. Someone needs to dig up that thread, because the stories, my word, the stories.

    Oroborus, funny link. They got one thing right: in case of a "fang strike," you really have screwed up.

    When talking about my tarantula collection at work, an elderly customer informed me that I should be careful not be bitten as a bite from a tarantula is fatal. When I tried to correct her, she swore to me that someone her dad knew long ago died from a tarantula bite (one of those friend of a friend of a friend stories). I then assured her that none of "my species" were fatal biters, but they wouldn't let go until it thundered.

    It's years old, I didn't see the point. I'd never even heard of Chacha until I clicked the link. XD;;;

    I've had a coworker swear that they sold defanged tarantulas back in his home state, and we reluctant to believe my when I said that they couldn't do that cause they T would eventually die.
