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.

    vampire…. none can tell except those who are trully the vampires themselves… afterall no one can explain the unexplainable, so explaining it would only bring critics to block it, the option would be to live life that we choose and w/e

    Pardon?

  10. Lee Ann says:

    Clearly you are much to ignorant to be able to form a plausible opinion on any aspect of the world.

  11. Lee Ann says:

    Therefore I would think it would be beneficial to you to preform a more in depth level or research on the topic before you present such a biased opinion.

  12. Kelly says:

    @werewolf101, are you a vampire? no? so how would you know if they enjoy kills? and not all werewolves find their kills to be appualing. some take great pride and pleasure in kills. Dont assume all werewolves are self loathing saints and all vampires are narcissistic homicidal phycopaths.

    Mud slinging does no good if a site is supposed to be able sharing ideas and philosophies. To oppose one side from the other only perpetuates the blind opinions that only build walls. Please tell me oh opinionated one …WHO WINS??? My tribe believes in the Wolfe as a relative in the Spirit realm. Do I dis on the Vampire?? Hell no!

    @Lee Ann: You go Girl!!!!!
