Scariest Vampire Animals

Head over to Writing My Own Fairytale where I did a guest post on the scariest vampire animals as part of the book blog tour for A Good Man.

The vampire animals I wrote about are:

Vampire animal #1 - Lampreys


Long monster-like fish with neither scales nor jaws latch onto a host with their hook-like teeth and gulp down its blood. Luckily, they spend almost seven years as harmless larvae, but once it reaches adulthood they terrorize their habitats and even attack humans when starved. They have caused the extinction of many other water creatures.

Vampire animal #2 - Mosquitos


Mosquitos are behind more human deaths than any other animal because of the diseases they carry. Male mosquitos are pretty harmless because they eat a vegan, nectar-based diet, but female mosquitos need to drink blood to get their protein, thus carrying over diseases such as malaria.

Vampire animal #3 - Bedbugs


Bedbugs hide in dark, secluded areas during the day - in mattresses, behind walls, under floors - and come out at night to drink blood. An outbreak spreads quickly, since females lay up to 500 eggs in a lifetime. Pesticides nearly wiped out American bedbugs in the 1940s, but they've recently come bouncing back. Kissing bugs are similar to bedbugs as they come out at night and feed upon humans. They are bigger and more aggressive than bedbugs. They also spread disease.

Vampire animal #4 - Ticks


Because ticks can drink up to 600 times their body weight in blood, they are considered one of the scariest vampire animals on earth. They also spread illnesses like Lyme disease.

Vampire animal #5 - Vampire bats


Of the roughly 1000 bat species, only three drink blood. They feed mainly on horses, cattle and other livestock, but they sometimes attack humans as well. One bite alone is enough to spread rabies.

Vampire animal #6 - Candirú


Let's finish with one of the scariest of all vampire animals: the candirú. These parasitic catfish live in the Amazon and Orinoco rivers and are known to enter the victim's private parts where they feed upon the blood and tissue. When this happens, it is very difficult to remove the candirú. They are the main reason why it is forbidden to swim naked in those area's.

Loved Dexter and American Psycho? Then you will love A Good Man.

Louis Caron is a good man – vegetarian, he feeds the homeless, takes care of animals and is concerned with the ecological future of the planet. But his altruism has a sinister edge – he's a vampire - and local detective Taglioni is becoming increasingly suspicious. Louis' attempt to escape the police will take him on a journey into his own private hell where he is not only forced to confront his worst fears, but also to destroy the lives of those he cares about most.

  6. Candiru. Are those the same ones that get in (mainly men) when they pee while swimming in the river? Oh, that just creeps me out. I am already water phobic. I don't need another reason to be afraid of swimming.

  9. Candirú would be my top pick. Just seeing it in the eye makes me squirm! lol I think teenagers should be given this information (minus that it's found only in the Amazon and Orinoco rivers). I think a little fear might make them reconsider skinny dipping! lol

    My second pick would be bed bugs. I've had first-hand experience with them at a hotel about a year ago. Trust me: you don't want to itch for a week like I did!

  12. That photo of the candirú in the eyeball is just about the grossest thing I've ever seen! Gave me the creeps!!

    I've had ticks before, and they are very unpleasant. I had one stuck in my bellybutton when I was 6 yrs old and still remember my mom trying to get it out!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. Candirú looks pretty scary and gross to me. Anything that can enter your body like that scares me to death.

  17. Ugh I absolutely abhor bugs and insects, although I find them fascinating and can watch Animal Planet for hours at a time. So now I'm freaking out about this kissing bug that I've never heard of, and who's apparently made an appearance in PA.

    Awesome.

  18. I'm so scared I don't think I'll ever go in a lake ever. I think the scariest is the last one.

  19. itch itch scratch scratch wiggle...gak!! Who am I kidding?? RUN!!!

  20. The last - the eye- is not a ca~ero, or candiru. That pic is of a parasite, most likely hookworm, that attacks the organs. De-worm your pets and be wary of contaminated feces.

  29. Hi Everyone, am Steven Mark from USA,
    This was how me and my Girlfriend became VAMPIRES. I got a guy from the internet called Mr. Barry who was a VAMPIRE so i told him that me and my Girlfriend would love to become VAMPIRES so he asked me of my Name ,Country, Age ,State , address and in the next 3 days i got the blood sample through the DHL which me and my Girlfriend took in the blood into our body and in the next 30 minutes we turned into a VAMPIRE so if you are interested in becoming a VAMPIRE. First: Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books, Sure. I understand. You are young; you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email:vampirekingdome666@gmail.com
