Straight Horn tarantula
The Straight Horn tarantula is commonly referred to as the Burst Horned baboon (Ceratogyrus darlingi). Its obsolete name is Ceratogyrus bechuanicus. The Straight Horn tarantula is a spider that is from southern Africa, most often Botswana.
The Straight Horn tarantula is grey-brown to black and can reach a body length of 2 inches. A black foveal horn is featured on the peltidium.
The Straight Horn tarantula is the most common Ceratogyrus species that is held in captivity, even though the spider is aggressive and fast. When the spider is held in captivity, to avoid fungal infection and allow the spider to burrow it requires dry substrate such as peat, so it may live. This species is from an arid habitat and can not survive with too much moisture.
