Real-life Vampires by: Megan Kopp
They do exist, and they live in Central and South America. They go after their victims, cows, horses, birds, pigs, and even humans, at night. They cut with sharp teeth and then lick their meal.
Vampires in the water
There are water animals that drink blood. Canduri, lampreys, and leeches all drink blood.
The sharp beaked ground finch of Ecuador drinks the blood of other birds.
