need help to identify species of this arachnid

Valera, Venezuela

Yesterday I found in my bathroom a pretty small arachnid, its size is about 6 millimeters, I suppose it is in a very young stage, I caught it carefully and I made it a habit in a glass jar, please if you could give me some tips how is the care of these interesting animals, what should I do and what should I do among other things. I am quite new in this, it is the first time I do it and the truth catches my attention, with nothing more to add. Greetings from Venezuela.

This is an immature lynx spider (family Oxyopidae) - see for a similar example. These spiders are active hunters that do not spin a capture web; they will eat just about anything that they can overpower.
