Vampire Moths Discovered (Video) | Blood-Sucking Insects, “Evidence Of Evolution”

22 sec read

Russia has some scary new insects called “Vampire Moths” which are reported to suck blood for up to 20 minutes at a time. Although it isn’t much more harmful than being bitten by a handful of mosquitoes, scientists say that this might soon be a trait in other moths.

…they just haven’t yet evolved. Dum dum dum dum.

The scary part about this is that the blood-feeding is associated with the reproduction of the moths. The males are using the blood to give to salt-deficient females.

Give it enough time and I could easily see a book and movie deal about these little guys.
