I don't think it is. It has great vision when I move my hand toward it, it will back up taking a hidding spot. It moves fast like a spider but it has six legs. It jaws look bigger than a carpenter ant.

Ants have 6 legs & are quite agile. Looks like an ant to me. Could just be a large carpenter ant?

 

Adult ants range in size from as small as 1 millimetre (1/16 to 1/32 inch), like little black ants and thief ants, to as large as 13 millimetres (1/2 inch), like carpenter ants.

Carpenter ants are not that agile. I have not been able to capture this insect. Also notice the white coloration.

If this is an ant what species? It definitely is not a carpenter ant.
