Ancient Babylonia bats were considered physical manifestations of the Souls of the Dead. To the ancient Mayans, they symbolized Transformation and Rebirth.
~Suspicions amongst thoughts are like bats amongst birds, they ever fly by twilight~ Francis Bacon (1561-1626)
As all bat lovers know, there is a species known as the "vampire bat," the most common of which is "Desmodus rotundus." Native only to Mexico and parts of Central and South America, they feed primarily on the blood of livestock. A vampire bat will bite its prey with razor-sharp teeth while the prey is sleeping. Rather than suck the blood, it laps it up, much as a cat laps milk.
When the blood-lapping bats were first observed by Spanish explorers, they were given the label "vampire" because of the fact that, they live off the blood of their prey.
As creatures of the night, bats fit in well with the motifs of Gothic fiction. Bram Stoker's major contribution to the association of vampires with bats through his working, Dracula, was his introduction of the idea that a vampire could shapeshift into the form of a bat (as well as a wolf and mist)
