It is indeed, although thankfully she is in a viable burrow so i still see her.

Where did you find her?

:iconfeszy:
I bought her from a tarantula breeder online.
Reply
:iconjackie-hagasowa:
Goodness,is she poisoness at all?
Reply
:iconfeszy:
She is but it is a very mild venom. All tarantulas are venomous but only a couple types have "medically significant bites" which is either the venom causes a good deal of cramping and pain or the large fangs do physical damage that could be medicaly significant.

Just remember this though. No tarantula has ever killed a human in recorded history. :)

If you want to know more about tarantulas feel free to ask.
