They split up to find the Goliath birdeater, the largest spider in the world, and the vampire bat, a blood-sucking tiny bat.

  • After rescuing his animal friends, Martin's power suit malfunctioned and caused him to gain several of their Creature Powers. The suit contained the body and amount of legs of a tarantula, the legs of a Gila monster, the arms and hands of an aye-aye, the arms and hands of a jaguar, the tail of a spider monkey, the spines of a thorny devil, the head of a wolf, and the wings of a vampire bat. This marks the second time that a character activates a Creature Power which is a mix of different animals. The first time occurred in "Octopus Wildkratticus". It also makes Martin the second character to do so, next to Seven who debuted in said episode.
    • The malfunctioned suit had the wings of a vampire bat (an animal that Martin wasn't holding before activating) but didn't have any features of a Tasmanian devil (an animal he was holding).
  • This is the fifth time where Zach stole the Miniaturizer. His previous attempts were in "The Gecko Effect", "Liturgusa Krattorum", "Praying Mantis", and "Blue Heron".
  • This is the 2nd holiday special. The first was "A Creature Christmas".
  • This is also the 2nd Halloween episode, the first being "Masked Bandits".
  • The various Creature Power Suits are shown in the same fashion as the ones onscreen in Wild Kratts Live 2.0: Activate Creature Power!, only the brothers enter the discs in the process.
  • This is the final special of the 2010's decade.

Key Facts and Creature Moments

  • Vampire bats have a grooved tongue that is really good for licking up blood. The special formula in their saliva keeps the blood flowing.
  • Vampire bats can drink 2 teaspoons of blood in about 20 minutes, just enough to provide a full meal for them. They don't drink enough blood to harm the animal.
  • With a full belly, vampire bats have to rest a while before they can take off. They are the only bats in the world that can run and jump on the ground.
  • Goliath tarantulas are the largest spiders in the world.
  • When alarmed, Goliath tarantulas rub their abdomen with their hind legs to release urticating hairs. These special hairs are irritating to the skin
  • Goliath tarantulas are more commonly known as the bird-eating spider because they have been seen eating and catching birds, and also rodents and lizards.
