Monday 26th June - I will be unavailable all day as I am attending a wedding, I'm putting this hurried note on the site as Monday is a busy day and I already have messages "binging and pinging" on my phone and computer. I may get a chance to reply this evening but it will more likely be tomorrow.  

  • Ceratogyrus darlingi - Horned Baboon Tarantula

Common Name:Horned Baboon
Scientific Name: Ceratogyrus darlingi

Status: Captive Bred  

Country of origin - Southern Africa
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability: Not for beginners, can be aggressive

My Opinion:
Although I am not usually a fan of African Baboon spiders, I do think the Horned Baboons are very pretty and the little 'horn' on the carapace is very cute. They are an aggressive spider but not in the same league as others like the Ornamental Baboon and Orange Baboon. They are large and impressive.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is difficult to give a size for the spiders as stock is constantly changing. Generally, the small size is a spiderling up to 1.5cm body length (small will be SMALL), juvenile is a grown on spiderling with a body length of about 1.5cm, medium 2cm to 4cm and a large is 4cm to fully adult (but a lot depends on the species!)

If you would like me to measure the body length of any medium or large spider, please send me an email. I cannot measure the body length of small and juvenile size spiders as they are constantly changing.

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
