of coarse it has venom, only a few spiders dont have fangs out of the thousands of species. it wont kill you if you arent allergic, but this species is notorious for laying eggs in the nasal cavity of mammals, so watch out.










































jk, this species is actually pretty beneficial to you, their GIANT webs can catch large insects, like wasps and bees, along with the flies your neighborhood widow catches.

Those are awesome spiders! I call them flower spiders (mostly because they are always hanging out on the flowers). A bite might hurt a bit and perhaps cause some burning or itching, but thatís about it. Itís not like an L. reclusa or Lactrodectrus or anything.
