There has never been a recorded death from a tarantula bite. No known species has a venom which is fatal to humans. They are generally not aggressive.

You say this like it's any consolation whatsoever.
That just means I would be the first recorded death. So still, NOPE.

As soon as I saw "lycosa", this is the first thing I thought of.  "...the nasty lycosa raptoria.  His tiny fangs cause creeping ulcerations of the skin."

If it makes you feel better, tarantulas have barbed hairs which they shed when nervous.  They dig into your skin and are crazy itchy.  If you handle one, you are in very serious danger of your hands itching for HOURS.

This article is not about proper Tarantulas, old chap. It's about Wolf Spiders. Big ones. Highly aggressive.

Lycosa tarantula will rarely bite, unless continually provoked, and the venom of the Lycosidae is not particularly toxic to human beings, and is no more painful than the sting of a bee.
