The photo is difficult to see, my best guess from the shape: a Harvestman. They are in class Arachnida like spiders, but in order Opiliones instead of Aranae. Harvestmen have one body segment istead of the two Spiders have. The really good news is that they don’t have fangs nor venom. They can’t bite people. Unlike Spiders they can gnaw on solid food. Spiders have a very narrow digestive tract which requires them to liquify their food before ingesting it.
