Hype. They look sinister but about like a bee sting and they will run away from you if they can. Same story with the local taranchulas. Should be much more afraid of most your local spiders. Kinda cool to see em but they don't climb into the top of your thatch hut and up to the bed to your neck. Exept in hollywood.
Disclaimer; Of course some people could be allergic. Bring epipins if ya are. They don't sell em down here.
