Red and Blue Yellow Gold Silver Crystal
Once it strikes,
it will not stop
draining energy
from the victim
even if it gets
too heavy to fly.
It attacks in a
stealthy manner,
without warning.
Its sharp fangs
are used to bite
and suck blood.
However hard its
victim's hide may
be, it punctures
with sharp fangs
and gorges itself
with blood.
It can drink more
than 10 ounces of
blood at once. If
it has too much,
it gets heavy and
flies clumsily.
When it plunges
its fangs into its
prey, it instantly
draws and gulps
down more than ten
ounces of blood.
