An Old World fossorial species, the Hysterocrates gigas (Cameroon Red Baboon) is one of the most communal species kept in the hobby. Many have reported seeing these spiders cohabitate amongst each other and not just accept the fact there are other Hysterocrates gigas in their space. Here at Spider Shoppe we are experimenting with two egg sacs (one egg sac is a different mother) in with one mother. There is always a risk to keeping more than one tarantula together.
