In most of the incidents recorded by Martin and Mirjam, the spiders were quite large, 10 to 15 cm legspan and one to seven grams in weight. A majority of the spiders were nocturnal web builders, spinning webs up to 1.5 meters across. Occasionally, groups of spiders got together to build several interconnected webs. Most of these webs were found near buildings inhabited by bat colonies. Only 12 percent of the spiders were able to catch bats without the aid of webs. Tarantulas in particular, were found eating small bats in the tropical rainforests of Peru, Ecuador and Brazil.

Once caught, they usually died of exhaustion while trying to free themselves, or dehydration, or starvation, or even over-heating.
