That's the perfect Old World Theraphosidae behaviour, man. Nothing to worry for that, they are defensive and tend to bite, more than once in few seconds. A good looking specimen, btw.

I wouldn't call that one dangerous yet the venom should probably been very unpleasant, just like genus Haplopelma etc

Btw now that's indeed a The Great Gama spider :-s

I don't know what kind of spider you have there, but I wouldn't be messing with it too much. No, you cannot keep tarantulas together because they will kill and eat each other. Only one spider in an enclosure. Do not ever keep them together.
Chances are that your spider needs lots of substrate to dig a burrow, or at least somewhere to hide. If you don't give that to them, they will be angry all the time. Don't try to touch them. Your spider probably isn't going to be worth a whole lot of money. Either you want to keep it or you don't. I have no idea how much money it is worth in your part of the world, but you aren't going to make much money selling it.

Looks like a Selenocosmia pritami, like any other OW T they have potent venom, fast and defensive. Keep them won plenty of moist deep substrate for them to burrow in and good moderate ventilation to keep a good amount of humidity but not to stuffy to cause air stagnation which promotes mold, mites and other nasties.

the spider is venomous, with a very powerful bite. I would not want to be bit by this spider at all.

All described Ts are venomous, not poisonous, molecularly considered similar toxins just method of delivery is different. Venom is potent via a wound while poison is absorbed.

Stop poking it. All spiders have venom. I cannot tell what species you have from the picture but what I do want to know is where did you get it? If you caught it outside somewhere you should just let it go before carelessness leads to a bite.
