got a 3i hottentota... i usually clean up his house around once every two weeks.. when cleaning, i just let him crawl up my arm.. this incident happened about a month ago... same thing...doing the regular stuff...
this time, he fell off my arm and landed on the edge of my table... i was about to pick him up when he stung me... the sting was in me for a good 5-7secs. (he got me at the tip of my ring finger) wow! i thought that little kid wont hurt but bam!!! about 10secs after, the pain was killing me!!! my mouth got all dried up and my whole arm was killing me.. id rather be hit by a boxer! the pain was all the way up my shoulder!
the pain lasted for about half an hour... after, i still get pin-like stinging feeling around the area of the sting... and that's my story.
and oh, after the sting, i didnt see my little hottentota anymore.. i guess the little guy is having a great time around our garden.
