• Heteroscodra maculata - Ornamental Baboon

Common Name: Ornamental Baboon
Scientific Name: Heteroscodra maculata

Status: Wild caught

Country of origin - West Africa
Habitat: Tree dwelling
Suitability:  Not for beginners, ultra aggressive

My Opinion:
Another fast, aggressive Baboon tarantula, probably one of the most common Baboon spiders kept in captivity. They are easy to keep, breed and rear, they are very pretty, being more of a light grey colour than the usual brown. Their name comes from the fact that they possess such ornate patterning on their bodies, they are sometimes also known as the Togo Starburst Baboon. I call them 'ultra' aggressive as I actually had a larger spiderling bite me on the wrist as I tried to stop it running across my table and then to add insult to injury it ran up my arm and bit me on the shoulder. I was surprised that it's fangs could penetrate my skin but they did and I felt it! (a bit like being jabbed with a pin and then later like a nettle rash)
