3rd Place: Bats
Dracula says hi! Bats look a little creepy and spend most of their time upside down in caves. They are depicted as blood-sucking killers in every classic horror film. But is it really true that they bite humans to suck our blood? No, that’s just a myth. Of the almost 1,000 different kinds of bat, 997 feed on insects, nectar, small mammals, birds, frogs and fish. But there are actually three kinds that feed on blood. They bite cows and horses. They don’t suck them dry, just take a few drops and are full.
