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!

  • 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!)

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.
