The Webbats are predators of the hot desert regions. They are massive bats with a twelve foot wingspan, very good eyesight, and the ability to do what no other bat can do…spit web from a gland beneath it’s jaws. It flies down like an eagle on it’s prey and spits a jet of web just in front so that the prey runs into the web, and then comes down within a few seconds and bites the prey with it’s fang-filled mouth.The fangs secrete a poison that can kill anything rabbit size or smaller on the spot and injure larger prey quite badly. The poison also causes gangrene if the wounds are not treated witin an hour, so an injured prey that escapes will soon die.
The bats will not fly in daylight unless they have to, as it’s too hot for them and the sun hurts their sensitive eyes.
They live in caves, mate for life, and have litters of six or seven batlings that are fed by their parents for a year before they can hunt for themselves. They will fight back if their caves are invaded,however. If the father or mother or one of the little batlings are killed, the entire family, even in daylight, will swoop down and try and kill the killer, even leaving their cave to pursue the killer.
They normally will not attack humans, as they think them too dangerous to attack (a meal of human is not worth having one’s wings slashed.)
