Mogens,
thank you for the interest in my spider photo. The baboon spider is the largest spider species in South Africa. I stand corrected but I think that only some Tarantulas and Wolf Spiders are bigger. So to answer your question. The 90mm is only the body size of this monster. Full grown with legs on average would be the size of a side plate. I have seen a very large specimen roughly the size of a dinner plate with its legs outstretched.

Kind regards
Gerhard
South Africa
