Dear Spider man,
This distinctive spider is a Parson Spider in the genus 
Herpyllus, probably Herpyllus ecclesiasticus.  Like most spiders, it has venom, and like most spiders, it is not considered dangerous to humans.  It is unlikely that it will bite a person, and if a bite does occur, there will likely be nothing more than local irritation.
