"I live in Oklahome and have picked up the alleged brown Tarantula. They have very long, very black, very sharp fangs. Upon measuring the fangs, I found it to be 1/2 inch long. While measuring it the spider bit repeatedly at the measuring stick. When I dropped it the spider took up attack posturing and came towards me. I captured it in a can and let it calm down undisturbed. After about ten minutes I looked in the can and gently put a long stick into the can turning the spider over for inspection. The spider struck at the stick repeatedly squirting clear venom along the bottom of can. My neighbor was watching closely while I did this and became scared when it started venom squirting from the sharp black fangs. The venom is of sufficient toxicity to make small children very ill. Be careful if you catch a wild Brown Tarantula here in Oklahoma, you will see how vicious they can get when messed with like a child does when at play."
