    Correct! But humans don't have an allergy to tarantula venom. All tarantulas are venomous, yes. But none at a level that can kill a human. It's to my understanding that there are no recorded deaths in the entire world from a tarantula bite. Australia may be an exception.. I know some of their sp. can really mess you up. But nothing worse than hospitalization. Basically, a tarantula's venom affects our muscular and nerve system. Causing muscle craps and extreme nerve pain for weeks and even month's at a time. Depending on the species of tarantula..

    Funny you should say that.. the collection just got big enough that I had to set up more shelves in my bedroom. Now I've got about 40 or so Pokies (Poecilotheria) around me while I sleep.

    if you look there are also no recorded deaths of healthy, adult humans with no allergies to scorpions.....most deaths occur in the third world where the individuals are malnourished.....also alot of the deaths are children that do not have the body mass to deal with the venom.....even the very toxic scorpions are highly unlikely to kill someone my size even without medical attention.....

    I have a few pics of a couple rooms.. but not the entire gig in one big pic.

    Here's the upstairs tarantula room..





    The back room in the basement.. it's messy, I know. But it's a work in progress.





    Roach tubs on the right there..


    I've got a couple of terrariums and a vivarium in the downstairs livingroom/bar.


    Get a couple of egg sacs, and that's what makes your numbers really jump!







    125 total count from this one sac alone.. I had 4 hatch that month alone.

    Beautiful photos. Glamor shots of the spiders make them almost not creepy. Do you make a living selling spiders?
