We organised with a friend of ours Paul to take us to Sasolburg and show us around some of the parks there. Hendrik, Taki and myself started off early in the morning to see what we can find. We where fully geared with camera equipment and documented everything.

We where lucky to find 4 Harpactira hamiltoni females and the one was sitting with an egg sac! Amazing to see in nature!

We took pics and video of the habitat as well as the species we found. Will update this thread with the documentation.

For now here is the map of where we went:

This is the first female we found and funny enough she was very close to water.
