Pop In & Pick Up Weekend


I will be having a Spider evening on Friday 30th November 6.30-8.30. All are welcome, no rules but if it is chaos I will put some in place for the next one! Come along for a chat, watch some spiders at a time that they come out to play and feel free to buy if you wish (there is no obligation to buy)


  • Ceratogyrus darlingi - Horned Baboon Tarantula

Common Name: Horned Baboon Tarantula
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.
