That's a nice T love the blue in it
Just another question on this topic. What species is called the bobbejaanspinnekop in South Africa? I spoke with a South African friend about my weird hobby of collecting tarantulas (she is a terrible arachnophobe) and she remembered having a lot of tarantulas around where she used to live which were called bobbejaanspinnekop. Is this an umbrella common name for all local tarantulas, like baboon spider? I know bobbejaan means baboon in Afrikaans. Just curious.
I'm Sure that word just translates to baboon spider
How big do they get exactly?
Depends on the speciesThe king baboon gets to about 8"
