Pterinochlus murinus- Sunburst baboon/ OBT
Yep they are not ones you would generally want to handle, their bite would ruin your day, and females which it seems you have top out around 5.5" sometimes a bit more. Once in a setup they will pick a place to make a bunker of webbing. It can be elaborate webbing too. They aggressively feed as well. They like it dry with a water dish with a light misting every now and then, at least that is how I kept my girl (who I named the devils spawn) and she did very well.
