I didn’t actually get bit, but I nearly did. I was cleaning out my Skeleton tarantulas water dish, and stupidly didn’t use tongs to remove it. Instead I put fairly thin gloves on, and reached my hand in. And bam! She threat posed and struck the glove just a centimeter from my bare wrist. I used tongs to put the water dish back in.
