Monday 15th July - I will be going on holiday in early August so you will find lots of bargains on the website at this time.

I need to clear some stock before I go, can't leave the family looking after such a huge number of animals!!

Some of the "Super Specials" this week: Tubs of Hissing cockroaches, Cave crickets, Ethiopian crickets, Huntsman spiders!

  • Hysterocrates gigas - Cameroon Baboon Tarantula

Common Name: Cameroon Baboon
Latin Name: Hysterocrates gigas

Status: Wild caught

Country of origin - Cameroon
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Large and very aggressive

My Opinion:
I can't help liking these spiders even though they are always aggressive. They are just so big and bold and will take on anything, watch your fingers! They were one of the first species that I ever bred. They are very easy to keep and like to burrow.

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

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.
