Due to caring for my daughter after having a baby, I will be posting all orders on Wednesday only this week (6th March)


  • Hysterocrates gigas - Cameroon Baboon Tarantula

Common Name: Cameroon Baboon
Latin Name: Hysterocrates gigas

Status: Captive bred

Country of origin - Cameroon
Habitat: Ground dwelling

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 1cm body length (small will be SMALL), juvenile is a grown on spiderling with a body length of 1cm to 2cm, medium 2cm to 4cm and a large is 4cm to fully adult (but a lot depends on the species!)


I am happy to send a photo of any size tarantula spider that you are interested in, just email me!

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
