    These are called ground sac spiders or ant mimic spiders. A harmless spider,usually found outdoors, but can wander in searching for water.

    These are but few spiders that feed on ants as well as other small insects. They don't use web, but actively hunt their prey.

    it looks like danger one. It might have poison in it. Please be careful and stay away from these kinds of special spider.
