The Common Vampire Bat:WeWriWa 7/28/18

For the foreseeable future, I’ll continue sharing snippets from my 60 Beautiful Bat Facts book for the WeWriWa blog hop. The next few weeks will focus on vampire bats. Vampire bats are one of the most misunderstood and feared of all the bat species. However, once people get to know a little bit about them, they’ll learn that these little blood suckers aren’t scary, and that they can even teach humans a few things about kindness.

Last week, I let you know that there are 3 different types of vampire bats. None are native to the United States, though there is speculation that due to climate change, some colonies may find their way into Southern Texas. According to some vampire bat facts posted by Texas State University the projected arrival will be in approximately 50 years.

This week, I’m focusing on the common vampire bat.

The vampire bat that researchers have gathered the most knowledge of goes by the name common vampire bat

Next week means a different vampire bat species! If you don’t want to wait until next Sunday, feel free to pick up a copy of 60 Beautiful Bat Facts. Not only is it packed full of facts, one of my sisters swears it’s funny.

Don’t forget to check out the wewriwa list. There are lots of brilliant authors posting excerpts of their amazing published works as well as their works in progress.

  1. I was totally into the “not creepy” thing until you said they crawl around to feed. Crawling bats are scarier than flying bats! But seriously, I love bats and find your posts very interesting.
