Generally takes prey with its long legs as it flies by. It is active throughout summer, but most active in later summer and fall. Nocturnal, often gathering in large groups on tree trunks and interlace legs together. It uses its scent glands located on either side of body to produce peculiar smelling (but non-poisonous) fluid when it is disturbed, probably acting as a repellant to some predators. Will also intentionally detach a leg, leaving it twitching, to distract predator; this is only done in desperate situations, because detached leg is permanently lost.
