Vampire bats don’t suck blood with their teeth; they use their teeth to pierce an animal’s skin and then lap up the blood with their tongue. Their saliva prevents the blood from clotting while they drink. Vampire bats can feed up to 30 minutes. While their preferred meal is cow’s blood, vampire bats have been known to feed on human blood.
