Cataxia babindaensis
Arachnid addict showed you up a bit lol.

This sp reminds me of a cross between liphistus and normal trapdoors.
Anamids, Nemessids and Pycnothelids will beat Idiopidae any day for appearance lol

Yea these ones do have an ancient look, absolutely massive size on them too

Love liphistus, but the idea of barely seeing them drives me away from keeping any of them

With any trapdoors, keeping them in a proper enclosure goes a long way to making them show themselves more often. I don't see almost anybody outside Australia making significant leaps in trapdoor husbandry unfortunately, if you chuck one in a box of flat cocofibre or peat moss don't expect it to behave naturally. Putting effort into providing an accurate copy of their natural habitat usually lets them feel much more settled and comfortable to come out further when capturing food

Might have a go at it if I see some for cheap, last ones I saw in Canada were $100 for a 1/16th sling
