Scientists Warn Vampire Bats May Soon Spread Into The Southern US

Vampire bats are found in Central and South America, but they are not currently found in the United States. However, scientists are concerned that vampire bats may soon spread into the southern United States due to climate change.

Climate change is causing the average temperature in the southern United States to increase. This is making it possible for vampire bats to survive in the region.

Vampire bats need warm temperatures to survive, and they are not able to tolerate cold temperatures.


Vampire bats are a concern for several reasons. First, they can spread diseases to livestock, such as rabies. Second, they can bite humans, although this is rare.

Scientists are studying the potential spread of vampire bats into the United States.

They are also developing methods to control vampire bat populations if they do spread into the region.
