I thought tarantulas were hairy

Neat pictures kind of looks like a trap door but I don't know. I bet you can get it down to family by searching for spider pics.

It looks like (which does not mean it is !) the species Dysdera crocata. This species is completely harmless unless you happen to be... a woodlouse, since D. crocata is specialised in that kind of (hard skelettoned) prey, which explains its impressive chelicerae ("fangs").

Check with this species' name on the web, you will find lots of nice pictures.

Cheers
