These bat-eating spiders have been known to trap bats in webs up to five feet wide. Sometimes the bats are strong enough to rip through the webs, but others get surprised when their flight is interrupted, and some can die of exhaustion while entangled in the web. And the spiders have also been observed actively attacking live, trapped bats.
Anyway, we hope you're not reading this right before you go to sleep, because we certainly wouldn't want you to have strange dreams about anything in particular SPIDERS SPIDERS BATS BATS BAT-EATING SPIDERS GIANT SPIDERS LITERALLY ATTACKING AND EATING BATS. G'night!
Friendly reminder that bats are soft and adorable, and not just as plushies.
