for latrodectus species, go look under your windowsills and in any manhole cover for water and power meters and mains. baboons, you'll find in the veld, not sure around PE though.

I was hoping somebody had a few for me to buy off them. If I look under window sills I can find plenty of Latrodectus Geomtricus (Brown Widow) but no Black button spider (Latrodectus Indistinctus/Cinctus)

Not sure about the widows. But all Baboon spiders are illegal to trade and keep.
Is there anybody out there

Yeah it is better to look for Foreign tarantula species. There is alot in the market at the moment.. If you like baboons then you can look at getting. Pterinochilus murinus (OBT's), Citharischius crawshayi (King Baboon), Hysterocrates gigas (Cameroon Red baboon). Hysterocrates Hercules( hercules baboon) just to name a few are all nice baboon tarantulas, that are legal to keep.. They are Not for begginers though, they do tend to be more on the nervous and defensive side..
