An American woman proved that she is no arachnophobe when she posed with her rather snappy pet tarantula and allowed it to bite her hand.
Footage shows exotic pet owner Kayonna Cole holding her female rose hair spider up to the camera as it digs its fangs into her skin.
Kayonna, who filmed the moment at her home in Los Angeles, remains calm throughout the video, but later suffered a reaction to the spider's venom.

Clearly visible are the tarantula’s fangs, which it immediately begins to use to pinch away at Kayonna’s hand.
Unflinching, Kayonna holds her hand steady as the tarantula removes its fangs from her skin and tucks them in slightly.
Later in the video the spider begins pinching her once more and even appears to puncture the surface of her skin.

But once again the spider's owner remains remarkably calm and holds her hand still for the spider.
Kayonna wrote online that the tarantula was showing aggression or possibly testing her fangs.
She wrote: ‘Her bites were not painful, the after effects from the venom were more painful with the symptoms being slight redness of the skin surrounding the bites, soreness and itching.
‘This species of tarantula has low toxicity venom similar to that of a bee sting.'
