Real scary, real vampires

So this one's not a vampire per say, but it's worth a mention. Tadpoles are one of the strangest looking creatures in the animal kingdom; but can you picture one with little vampire fangs sticking out of its mouth?

Spiders are bad enough, but a spider that prefers human blood?

As if a regular old leech isn't creepy enough, this one has super-size teeth and likes to live in your nose.

Even better. This vampire fish swims into . . . um . . . "any orifice" . . . and then proceeds to attach itself and feed.
