There are more animals who are hematophages (they drink blood) than you might think! There are: 3 species of bats (http://www.the-surprising-world-of-bats.org/hematophagy.html), innumeral insects (fleas, ticks, mosquitos, flies, etc.), some finches (http://creation.com/vampire-finches-of-the-galapagos), leeches, lamprey, and numerous other animals that depend on blood for their subsistence. You could even include humans in the category of vampires, since some nomadic cultures (especially pastoralists like the Maasai) drink blood as part of their regular diet (http://www.africaguide.com/country/kenya/culture.htm).
