"While they might sound like characters in an Anne Rice vampire novel, animals ranging from leeches to bats and even birds consume blood." As Halloween approaches, thought you might enjoy this!

Nature is always fascinating. I hear that if one is camping out in the wilds of the amazon some of the leeches pretty large. Have heard of all of these except for the vampire finch of the Galapagos Islands. Who knew that a finch was a vampire!
