Hey man,

This is most likely to be a Harpactira hamiltoni.

When you see a baboon spider try and focus your photograph on capturing the fangs. I will be posting a nice Identification guide on our Baboon Spider Atlas page to help even more.

Please could you upload this photo with the details to SpiderMAP at vmus.adu.org.za

Harpactira tigrina is found in Port Elizabeth (Algoa Bay)

Hope this helps :)

Yet another spider, this I have never seen before and hoping you guys can identify it.

This was spotted in the Malelane Gate area. They are reportedly as big as a human hand and are all over the place:

Banded-legged Orb Web Spider (Nephila senegalensis) according to saphotographs.blogspot.com/2013/10/bande...-spider-nephila.html

Don't know if it's correct, but it's my guess...
