Spiders often sting people when they accidentally step on them. Tarantula’s poison is not dangerous for most people. However, their stings may be painful and can cause swells.

Students of biology catch tarantulas under the supervision of teachers in Homel Province. Then they examine them in the laboratory, BelTA reports.

Uladzislau Ivanou, research assistant of The Bioresource Centre of the National Academy of Sciences, gave advice on how to avoid tarantulas on ONT not long ago. Tarantulas do not attack in the daytime but they should be avoided at night, he stressed.
