Rated to be the most beautiful tarantula of them all by many enthusiasts, Monocentropus balfouri is a very special and beautiful baboon spider. Almost wiped out from their home habitat on the island of Socotra, numbers now thrive around the world thanks to the Tarantula hobby. Truly a beautiful tarantula to behold and at 12cm, they aren’t the biggest tarantulas by far, but they are simply a must-have for any collection, especially with Monocentropus balfouri being one of few species that are truly capable of co-habitation and can thrive in a communal setup.
