Scientific Name: Heterothele villosella
Common Name(s): Tanzanian Chestnut Baboon
Country of Origin: Togo, Ghana
Habitat: Terrestrial, Burrowing
Temperament: Because of their skittish nature, they aren't the best species to handle. If approached they will usually go into a threat posture, but is usually a bluff, their best defense is to flee.
Notes: The Tanzanian Chestnut Baboon is a small tarantula. It is also a prolific webber. This is one of the few tarantulas that are communal in nature. I think everyone should have a communal setup. The only drawback in having a communal setup is, you may end up with a hundred tarantulas, quick. I consider this as a beginner tarantula. This is also a beautiful species and easy to care for.
