DESCRIPTION AKA Cameroon red baboon spider from the family Theraphosidae. Burrowing non poisonous spider with colours ranging from black/grey to dark brown. It hides in its burrow and only appears for a few hours each night to prey on small creatures that pass by its burrow. They live in tropical to sub-tropical environments and like high humidity.They are naturally found at ground level in tropical rainforest areas. These tarantulas will eat other invertebrates, such as crickets, cockroaches, butterflies, moths and other spiders or small vertebrates, such as mice, lizards, frogs, snakes and occasionally birds. They are also known to be one of the only swimming spiders and will occasionally dive to catch fish. They kill their prey with their venom, inject digestive juices into the body of their prey and suck up the resulting liquid. ref en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hysterocrates_gigas
