Are Huntsman Spiders Venomous?

Yes, huntsman spiders are venomous, as are all spiders to varying degrees. However, the venom of a huntsman spider is not considered dangerous to humans. While a bite from a huntsman spider can cause some discomfort, including localized pain, swelling, and redness, it is generally not dangerous to a normal healthy adult. There is no recorded case of a human dying from a huntsman spider bite. It’s also worth noting that huntsman spiders are not typically aggressive towards humans and prefer to run away rather than attack.
