All monstrous spiders are aggressive predators that use their poisonous bites to subdue or kill prey. Monstrous spiders come in three general types: hunters, webspinners, and spitters. Hunters and spitters rove about, while webspinners usually remain immobile and attempt to trap prey. (Hunting and spitting spiders can spin webs to use as lairs, but cannot use their webs as weapons the way webspinners can.) A monstrous spider has a poisonous bite (and poisonous spit, in the case of spitting spiders). All types of monstrous spiders often wait in their webs or in trees, then lower themselves silently on silk strands and leap onto prey passing beneath. A single strand is strong enough to support the spider and one creature of the same size. A monstrous spider can move across its own web at its climb speed and can pinpoint the location of any creature touching its web. A monstrous spider can detect and pinpoint any creature or object within 60 feet in contact with the ground, or within any range in contact with the spider’s webs.[1]
