"Tarantulas and to some degree scorpions don't like to be blown on. Touch is very important to a tarantula because their sight is very poor. In the wild a touch or air disturbance is a danger signal and causes a fight or flight response. Tarantulas have specialized hairs some are barbed for defense. Barbed urticating hairs are very light and brittle so they break off easily. Many tarantulas "kick" these hairs off with their back legs when threatened. The hair can cause severe itching if they make contact with the skin. They are very irritating to the mucus membranes of the eyes, nose, mouth, and throat. Some people claim that the itching hairs are worse than the venomous bite! So the worst thing you could do is put a tarantula in your mouth and blow on it. 'A little prayer at this point may also be a good idea, because although tarantulas are simple minded creatures, they are not always predictable." Brad Byers
