Concentrating on experimentally relevant cases we discuss nonlinear dynamics and deterministic chaos in F = 1 and F = 2 spinor Bose-Einstein condensates. A thorough numerical and analytical treatment of the equations of motion of symmetric F = 2 spin dynamics in the single-mode approximation elucidates the complex dynamics and uncovers regions of classical chaos in this important quantum gas system.
