Vampire Bat

Vampire Bat, any bat of the genera Desmodus and Diphylla, from Central and South America. The upper canines are very large, and the gullet is too small for anything solid to pass. These bats live entirely on blood, shaving off the skin of the victim, and sucking the blood from the small vessels exposed.
