Hi krishnagopal.
I was surprised with this arachnid I have never seen or heard of. It really looks like an ant. I supose it takes advantage of the confusion to predate on other insects...
Nice pictures, specially the right one.
Best regards, Felipe.
PD: I also lived in AbuDhabi for more than 2 years a long time ago, it must be amazing now ;)
