Is it true a baby spider could kill you the same as a baby snake just one spider as one snake?

    Huh. I have no idea what you are trying to ask venomous snakes can kill people, spiders are no where near as venomous as snakes. A mild venom could kill someone fast if they had an allergic reaction to it. Could a baby spider kill you the same as a baby snake??? Well there’s only one kind of dead. So if you die from it then it’s the same. But there are not many spiders or tarantulas that people consider life threatening

    Depending on the species & their venom, yes, anything is possible. If one should feel ill after such a bite, they shouldn't ignore the symptoms - seek medical help/advise ...

    It depends on how potent the venom is. A baby snake may have enough venom to kill. OTOH, some adult snakes, such as the copperhead, have such mild venom that they can rarely kill a human. Baby snakes and spiders also have much smaller fangs than the adults so they may not be able to pierce ths skin of humans. Their venom only works if it can be injected under the skin. Our skin contains an outer layer of dead cells that protects us from a lot of harmful chemicals found in the environment.
