That is one chill baboon. I nearly had a heart attack every time he cupped his hand right in front of it! :eek:

Great find!

Nice size female that's for sure. The disposition, albeit during the day, was interesting too. Sure was a very one. The smaller one towards the end lived up to its species rep a bit hah.

Opportunistic for hides it seems too. I don't know the area but perhaps being in a tree was a better route than digging a burrow. Certainly prevents them from being stepped on, potentially crushed etc.

Possibly the vibration from vehicle's on that "road" was enough to cause them to seek out a place higher up that they perceived as a little safer..

Off topic a little but is the black morph ever available? I think it's much more stunning than the gold variety..

There's O.phillippinus...

Orange is cool and all but I have worked with literally hundreds of orange obts in the exotics trade.. Constantly Pissed off orange spiders get old after awhile.. I want a constantly pissed off black spider :)

Speaking of P.murinus, do you guys in the U.S have those morph easily in the trade?
