Tarantula spider IV

And here you see our eight legged friend doing a disappearing act in an opening between two boards in the work table. He certainly didn't take off in a sprint after he was spotted hiding between between the sacks of dirt. I removed one sack from the table and came back in about five minutes. Then I removed the other sack but he remained in a frozen position. Finally, he got tired of being photographed and decided to look for a more secluded place to hide. Look at the red hairs on the tail. I wonder if that might not be a sperm sack? I forgot to mention that the size of the beautiful creature is about five inches long.
