From Monday 12th April

As a non-essential shop I will be inviting customers along to my bug room to collect their order or choose their animals by appointment. I have added some "collection only" items to the website as an incentive!

  • 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!)

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

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
