Step 1 - Find a Spider

Searching for baboon spiders is fun. Look for their burrows in open ground or turn rocks to find their silk retreats. Search in different habitats, and help fill the gaps in our map.

Step 2 - Take a Photo

Use your camera or phone to get a clear photo of the spider with as much detail as possible. Photos from directly above are best for identification purposes.


Step 3 - Upload the Record

Use our Record Upload Form or upload directly to the SpiderMAP Virtual Museum, and your contribution to the Baboon Spider Atlas is complete.
