vampire facts

Here are 10 vampire facts:

1.) Fact: Vampires live on blood.  In all the different stories, legends, and folklore surrounding vampires, this is universally a common trait of all vampires – they feed on blood.  There is some question on whether or not it has to be human blood, some stories say it can be animal blood.

2.) Fact:  Vampires take on a darker color when they drink blood.  Some people describe it as a warm flush.

3.) Fact: Vampires do have weaknesses.  They are not invincible.  Legends and folklore cite many different possibilities as to what those weaknesses are however not all stories agree with what actually works.  Some of the more common theories cited in legends include garlic, crosses, beheading, sunlight, stake through the heart, holy water, fire, and of course werewolves.

4.) Fact: Not all vampires have fangs.  Some of the earliest stories of vampires describe creatures that do not have the fangs that are so commonly depicted in vampires today.

5.) Fact: Humans are not the only vampires.  There are a few vampiric animals that exist including some birds, bats, and fish.

6.)  Fact:  Humans have believed in vampires for centuries.  In the Middle Ages especially, the belief in vampires was at a near panic level.  Humans believed that the plague could be spread by vampires, so they would shove bricks into the mouths of dead corpses believed to be vampires.  One such corpse was discovered in 2009 in Venice.

7.) Fact: Dracula is a famous vampire novel, not a real person or vampire.  But the novel was based on a real person – Vlad the Imapaler.

8.) Fact:  In some cultures the Devil and the vampire are virtually interchangeable beings.  Although it is worth mentioning that this is only some cultures. Many western cultures have a much more positive view of the vampire.

9.) Fact: A number of vampires that have banded together can be called a pack, a coven, or a clan.

10.) Fact: The question of whether or not vampires are real is universally debatable, but the fact is that there are a number of self-professed vampires, humans that truly claim to be vampires.

  4. Um,surely if you were a REAL vampire then you wouldn’t reveal yourself to everyone, especially online, because then they could make the information viral via Twitter or Facebook. Then again, they might also ask you for proof.

    Also, if you were a vampire, why would you reveal yourself to everyone on this site, especially the people who claim to be werewolves?? Although, the question is, why would you go on a site called “” if you were a vampire anyway?? Surely vampires hate werewolves??

    @wolflover234: I am not a vampire but having experience with people on here I assure you that revealing yourself on here will not make the info viral, most people don’t, (or are unwilling to admit that they) believe in this stuff. Also vampires do not hate werewolves, it is simply an idea created to make a conflict for stories and other such. You seem educated mind coming to chat?

  6. Gabrielwolf2012 says:

    @wolflover234: Also claiming your something doesn’t mean you are, its best to leave people like that alone.

  7. Ivanov says:

    @wolflover234: Gabrielwolf2012 is right on this matter. It is usually the ones who do not say anything until they probed enough and questioned enough as well as have adequate knowledge of what creature they are can they be taken seriously.

    I’m into shape-shifting and stalk all living creatures on earth, whether humans, animals, vampires and especially werewolves!!! My nappy hair and my jaw that contains four three inch fangs are well suited to rupturing and pulverizing any known flesh and bone into powder!!! The resultant feast is fit for a king for so I am. I prey on my hapless victims by nite or by day so beware!!!

    @Preydtorre: Yeah, good luck with…whatever that is.
