The common vampire bat (Desmodus rotundus) is a small, leaf-nosed bat native to the Americas. The common vampire bat mainly feeds on the blood of livestock, approaching its prey at night while they are sleeping. It uses its razor-sharp teeth to cut open the skin of its hosts and laps up their blood with its long tongue. The common vampire bat was first classified as Phyllostoma rotundum by Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire in 1810. The species received several scientific names before being given its current one — Desmodus rotundus — by Oldfield Thomas in 1901.
