Bloodsucking Creatures

Series: Bizarre Science

By Ron Knapp

When we think of bloodsuckers, we often imagine vampires like Count Dracula in scary movies. But what about the real bloodsuckers that creep, crawl, and fly all over the world? Mosquitoes love to feed on human blood. Vampire bats fly out of their caves for a late night meal. Fleas like to crawl between the hairs of dogs and cats for a bloody snack. Learn all about these bloodthirsty animals in BLOODSUCKING CREATURES and which ones might be coming for you!
