Rollie Pollie Vampire Bat by shorty-antics-27 Rollie Pollie Vampire Bat by shorty-antics-27
She has a warm heart for you. <3 She LOVES you!


Finally! another bat picture! 8D And this time, THE INFAMOUS VAMPIRE BAT. <3
They are freakin cute!

NOW, FOR ME TO BREAK SOME MYTHS ABOUT VAMP BATS, AND GIVE MORE INTERESTING FACTS THAT I ADORE. <3

-Vamp bites RARELY bite humans for blood (and it's usually on the foot with a small incision.
-They usually feed on pigs, cows, chickens... mostly farm animals. They'll make a quick cut with their incisors and then lap up the blood with their tongue. They do NOT "suck" blood. That's FALSE. It also doesn't hurt the animal.
-Out of the 1,000+ species of bat, there are only three kinds of vampire bats.
-Two of the three mainly drink the blood of birds
-Vamp bats can walk, run, and jump!
-Female vamp bats will regurgitate to another less-fortunate bat if need be. They share. <3 In exchange, they'll get some grooming.
-They will also adopt any orphaned vamp bats, too.
-They have very good eyesight!
-They are very clean animals.

And that's all for now.

<3

(btw, I went REALLY quick with this. I know some things are wrong)

Awww! Desmodus rotundus, I presume? (Emphasis on the "rotund"!) Common vampire bats have the most fascinating social dynamics! They apparently form lasting friendships, and appear to display reciprocal altruism - something that is almost unheard-of in non-human animals (arguments have been made that chimpanzees, dolphins, and elephants do, as well, but none as well-documented as vampire bats). I find it fascinating that one of the most vilified species on the planet is actually one of the sweetest and most caring!

This is adorable.

I didn't know they shared in exchange from grooming.
