·         This Yellow Sac Spider Cheiracanthium punctorium was photographed in the Loire Valley, France. The impressive fangs of this Continental European species are truly enormous in proportion to the overall size of the body. The bite is poisonous to humans, so contact is best avoided. Its venom can produce unpleasant clinical symptoms and medical treatment may be required if a bite is suspected, particularly if a child has been bitten. See: https://araneae.nmbe.ch/data/1140/Cheiracanthium_punctorium for further information. Bites are normally only likely to be received if a nesting spider is disturbed and if it tries to defend itself. These arachnids most certainly should not be handled!
