Wolf spiders are awesome, those and also the daddy long-legs. Whenever I see those I try to capture them and let them loose outside. Most don't know that both these spiders hunt widows and fiddle-backs for dinner

Reading the article is says bats have few natural enemies other than owls, hawks, and snakes. Now owls and hawks I can understand but how do snakes actually catch bats?
From my limited understanding of bats, they live in caves and do not land on ground. Unless snakes scale up the side of cave walls, how exactly do they hunt them?
Great post by the way.

The Bats are just flying creatures caught by large predators.....
In every country / continent.....? I think not,......... There are no bat eating spiders in the UK or Ireland but there are lots of bats.....
Relax and worry about the Solar storm, impending new financial crisis or even antibiotic resistant bacteria.....

Can you explain how a spider can make a strong enough web to trap a bat, and then how it would consume it
