    Ok first off this guy's is absolutely stupid....I think.... and second WHAT is this spider doing? Those fangs can sink into a hisser like it was made of cheese....so since the fangs aren't even breaking the skin what is this? Doesn't seem defensive or anything. This spider like "nibbling" this guy with love or something? Lol.

    I asked that as well. I seriously think we need to remove all warning labels for people like this. Still I want to know why that T is just "tickling" rather than sinking those fangs to the bone!!

    Ive seen this video before sometimes a T will use its fangs as a means to get a better grip if they feel like they are slipping. The T may be having a hard time getting a good footing and used its fangs for extra help.

    Agreed with @sdsnybny , the T is trying to get a grip.

    He keeps flexing his hand, and its using it's fangs to grip. Interesting that he would encourage it. I was hoping for actual close up footage of how far they sink them in. Meh.

    Looks like a person keeping a T for the wrong reasons.
