My new friend having her first snack at home, on her pile of skulls.
She makes Spicy look like a noodle. She grabbed the roach as it ran by with her hind legs and whipped her head around to bite it. Bites from this lil one range from "really bad wasp" to "I went to the ER to get Percocet" depending on amount of venom injected, number of times bitten, and person's sensitivity, so no, I'm not even going to attempt touching her.
I put my fingers in Spicy's cage to get the water dish to refill and such (her bite intensity is "wasp") but, uh, I'm not sure I'll do that here.
