Advert. (polecamy) - przewóz osób do anglii | Huge AF King Baboon Pickup.
Doesn't seem very nice being packed into a tiny box like that
When I first saw the title I thought you meant "Huge as fuck king baboon pickup". Still applies.
Such a beautiful T, impressive size as well!
I eventually want to start expanding my love for tarantulas into a full on hobby. I definitely see a King Baboon in my dream collection but not for a long long time. Not until I feel I have enough experience with these amazing creatures.
True, they are.
"Defend" aggressively?(deffensive?) it's more like offensive! Sometimes it actually hunts your hand if you feed it......I never experienced any species dare that....
You never picked her up.
Thanks mate, she is a total monster, paid £60 for her including shipping!
I didn't know you had been bitten, how did you end up getting bitten and what were the local effects?
Lemsip product placement? How much are they paying you? ;)
1:17 the chamber opens!!
That is a gorgeous tarantula!!! We have some videos on our channel you might enjoy! :)
Start with a diff sp than the King Baboon, the largest old worlds in the hobby, they will defend aggressively, if you must get one, take a look but don't touch attitude, you'll be good. Always use forceps in the enclosure. If you want a larger spider to start with that you can hold, search out a Salmon Pink Birdeater (L.parayhbana) which get larger (up to 10")... or any of the large Grammostola. If you want a large Old World (No hair kicking) get a Phlogius sp Goliath, they are less nasty.
omg she is fucking huge ! gorgeous though :)
just done another update thought u might wanna check it out love this vid btw x
Thank you, they are an aquired taste, but they are a no fuss animal that is easy to keep.. this species right here is my favourite of all, they have a look like crushed velvet in the flesh with pencil thick back legs.. this one is around 8", they can get to 9" I have heard... which puts them in giant territory. These are old worlds so they don't flick hairs, to make up for it they have a bit of a temper but, on the plus side, they don't go bald after a shed.. those hairs itch too.
You psycho mutha fucker touching a king baboon like that. Mine would have been in a defensive posture on the first "prod". Lovely looking T though! Congrats!
Great pick up
Nice man!! Mine is female about 4.5 inch !! I love these!!
Very beautiful king baboon.
I heard theyre monsters but this one seems calm
Great addition, spiders aren't really my thing,but i'm kind of growing a soft spot for them.
Actually, the best choices for a beginner would be a Mexican Redleg/Redknee or a Pink-Toed
Wow! She is beautiful! Please keep posting updates on her!
Are you fucking stupid, this is how you receive things in mail order, this is not the enclosure I keep her in, it's evident in the video.
Haha, yeah that was just because of the weather, spider was a bit dormant.. now it is all settled in, there is no chance of doing this lol!
i was gonna get that spider :D i handled my , muticus the first day it came, i think they go "dormant" as you say, mine wouldnt let me do that now either!
Yes I was bitten.It was on the finger and the poison rushed up my arm.I had no pain until that night,when I was in bed and my legs started atrophying and cramping so I had to tie my legs down so I could sleep,and my legs wouldnt atrophy(bend on their own with calf mucle cramping) since I was working 12 hrs aday.Also had my arms cramp and my back uncontrolably,PAIN
There are a few from Africa, they call their spiders Baboon spiders for the plush toe pads they have on their feet that resemble a baboons finger. All of them have bad tempers since they are old world spiders and lack the urticating hairs.. the King Baboon here has the thickest back legs of all tarantulas and is the second largest spider in africa, the rarest is the hercules baboon, but there is only one specimen that exists.
That is a big spider,are they aggressive,and does it come from africa.The one that bit me was called a baboon tarantula from africa,same kind? And I dont see your new videos post on my e-mail,wonder why anyway nice baboon
How did your old T die?
No idea, it was fed and watered, I kept it dry (as they like it drier), I misted down it's burrow and fed it a lot.. just found it dead one day (stress?)... this girl is doing great right now, I will post an update soon.. her back has doubled in size since I allowed her to burrow.
Oh really? what was the facebook group?
i honestly have a phobia of spiders but that thing is sick i might consider getting a arachnid at my local reptile show i have seen some bird eaters there awesome. what do you think is a good beginner arachnid?? thanks i subbed
Would a Greenbottle Blue be a good beginner? I've seen them handled and they are just COMPLETELY beautiful. Especially the coloration.
My first spider was about as beginner as they come, I went with a Chilean Rose (G.porteri) (She got to almost 7" but she can be picked up, unlike the one here) they also rarely flick hairs... get to 5.5" for a female, great sp! Other good sp. Mexican Redknee (B.smithi) Curly Hair Tarantula (B.albopilosum) Mexican Red Rump (B.vagans) Mexican Redleg (B.emilia) Mexican Fireleg (B.boemei) Good arboreal sp. Pink Toe (Avicularia avicularia) Antinique Pink Toe (Avicularia versicolor)
Thanks, my fav sp of all T's, although i'm feeling a lot of the new aussie t's "like"
It lasted two weeks,and I would spasm uncontrolably for that whole period,off and on all day.It was kinda scary when my back had spasm.Try not to get bit LOL Its funny now but not when it was going on,LOL
Lovely T. Gonna pick one up soon. From what I've seen this species is not as likely to bolt, but prefers to just stand it's ground. Whether as obts just generally go mental.
thats amazing how your king baboon aloud that i bet she is proper defensive now she has warmed up lol, its one T i badly want but still need more experience before i got into the advanced Ts
