The Baboonspider is a Maxis-made creature, present in the final game. They are large, spider-like creatures with 9 eyes in a pyramid pattern. The baboon spider is a real animal and the base for this creature.
The Baboonspider isn't a successful predator. Its only means of attack is an average bite, and since it is a carnivore, it must only feed off early creatures or dead bodies.
While socializing, they can sing poorly and are equally bad dancers. They are however great charmers. Their insect mandibles also gives them more health than normal.
