Hercules baboon spider World’s heaviest spider -
Category: News
Hercules baboon spider World?s heaviest spider

Boxing gloves were nowhere in sight for a world spider heavy-weight title challenge at the Natural History Museum last month.

The Hercules baboon spider, Hysterocrates hercules, specimen was collected over 100 years ago in Nigeria. Virtually nothing is known about this species but, in common with other baboon spiders, it probably lives in a burrow in the ground and comes out at night to hunt its prey.

Museum bug expert George Beccaloni was contacted by GWR life sciences consultant Karl Shuker after reports of a possible rival. Karl asked George if he could check the size of the Hercules baboon spider as the Natural History Museum has the world?s only known specimen and George is the author of the Museum book, Big Bugs Life-Size.
