This fang is riddled with holes so small they cannot be seen by the naked eye, connecting to vein-like tubes running up the fang that pulse red when drawing blood.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence, generally in the form of blood, of living creatures. Although vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures, and may go back to "prehistoric times", the term vampire was not popularized until the early 18th century.
