The Theraphosid Venom Poster

Like nearly all spider species theraphosids are “venomous“. However, this does not necessarily mean that they are harmful for humans. This poster covers five interesting aspects of this topic:


- Physiological aspects

- Medical importance for humans

- Venom composition and mechanism of action

- Theraphosid venom toxins for the study and treatment of pain

- Extras: Glossary, overview on dangerous spiders, references


For the first time, it’s finally available in English, written and translated by the original authors and experts Tobias Hauke and Dr. Volker Herzig, featuring new recent scientific findings! And like the last version, it features a full glossary and all references again! The previous German version was exhibited in the zoological museum of Bonn (ZFMK), the Cologne Zoo and was also featured in its own article in the Arachne (04|17).
