Scientific Name: Stromatopelma Calceatum
Common names: Feather Leg Baboon Tarantula | Featherleg Baboon
STRICTLY NOT FOR BEGINNERS. RECOMMENDED FOR EXPERT KEEPERS ONLY. This tarantula is lightning fast from sling to adult. This tarantula is known to be defensive and very aggressive if provoked and will gladly deliver some of it’s venom if asked nicely. No solid medical data has been collected regarding the effects of this tarantula’s venom on humans, but It’s venom is considered medically significant, causing intense pain and cramping later on.
So please take great care when working with the beautiful but serious monster that is the feather leg baboon tarantula. (They’re not really THAT bad, but we’re making sure anyone who considers keeping this species fully understands what they are working with.)
