Lethal Hunter

Many thanks Brian and Chris.
Are the white blobs on the second pic poison dripping from fangs or just the fangs? I think I was lucky to catch this, even 'tho it's not in focus!!!

Fangs

Good question! I'll have a close look when next I see one. It almost looks like the joint where the tubular, tapered fang itself articulates with the larger basal segment of the chelicera.
