== == Like many old-world tarantulas, they have a strong venom, and can inflict a painful bite; however most baboon spiders are not considered dangerous to man. Like many tarantulas, Harpactirinae (Baboon Spiders) are large, hairy spiders. The size of their bodies ranges from 13mm (1/2") to 90mm (3 1/2"). Colours include various shades of black, grey, brown, and yellow. These spiders have thick black scapulae pads at the end of their legs, which are said to resemble the feet of baboons. They generally feature medium to small theraphosids with various dorsal abdominal patterns of coloration.
