This afternoon I had a BugZoo presentation at an area middle school. I was handling an adult female and trying to scootch her onto a student's hand by nudging he from behind. She gave me a brief tail-flick before moving. I felt a slight prick similar to when my H. paucidens stung me, so I thought perhaps she connected.

After about a minute or two I felt a very slight tingling in the tip of the finger she stung. This passed after about five to ten minutes.

From the other reports I've read I expected something a bit more than this. It wasn't a dry sting, but it was close to it -- I'm guessing just the equivalent of a "warning shot."

I can say with certainty this was less painful than my H. paucidens sting.

Same female, similar circumstances -- tailing her out of a small tank for a demo.

Same effects.

Eventually I need to experience something more powerful than a warning shot.
