Last night (at last!) I spotted what I think it is the very first Sicarius spider I've ever encountered with. I couldn't get a front shot to be able to check the Sicariidae's six eyes arranged in dyads, but I'm quite sure I do recognize other factors like the spider's colour, the shape of the abdomen (opisthosoma) and legs, and the textures of both parts. There are at least 9 different Sicarius species in Chile, and I live in a zone where you should be able to find them, which is of course terribly difficult due the spider's ability to remain out of sight. It was big. Double the size of its Loxosceles cousins easily. It was very agile too. Whereas I took the photos in total silence, when I started to film a video, the spider took off immediately just as it heard the sound of my voice. Lovely one, I will never forget it, that's for sure.

Curious thing, this specimen shares the entrance to its lair with a BIG Grammostola Rosea, which is the same I had previously shared here, and that I spotted once again last night just a few minutes before I took this set of photos. Then I saw this Sicarius and at first I was like "get out of there, Sicarius one" but then I thought may be they have never even stumbled upon with each other. I mean, the Sicarius one is so silent and agile that I think the Rosea doesn't even know of the existence of its highly venomous neighbor.
