A young woman was taken to hospital on Satuday night after suffering a bite from a Sri-Lankan Ornamental Tarantula. The incident reportedly happened at a sports club in Karlovy Vary. The spider, a fast and aggressive breed, was brought in by a group of young people and somehow managed to escape from its glass box. The young woman was bitten after picking it up from the floor for fear someone would tread on it. The spider’s bite is not life threatening although very painful and may cause complications.
