Abstract

The autor describes real "bloodsucking" in Desmodus as the normal feeding mode. Through two channels on the under side of the tongue, between lingua and sublingua, the blood is ingested. The lingual movements, which produces the suction vacuum, have been erroneously interpreted by other authors as "lapping".
