Wow. I've heard that this species has barbs but I guess I figured they were just extra prickly urticating hairs. This is pretty intense. Have you ever been stuck by them?

No but she'd like to. She does what has been appropriately named "the cartwheel of death" Lol Followed by biting anything she lands on. Unusual defensive behavior as far as what I'm use to with my classic threat postured arboreals.
