Nosferapoda

This "Gremlin" of the future is a strictly terrestrial bat. Its wing membranes have totally disappeared, the arms have become very strong and it also has very impressive ears. Its pelt is made of fine fur that can be very elongated on the back, which retains water dew. Like a feline, this monstrous bat licks carefully every morning.

Morphology: The wings have turned into walking legs: their arms are strong but fingers-which supported the membrane alaire- very reduits, except the thumb which bludgeon office. The back is straightened. The animal moves especially on its hind legs, sometimes relying on his front legs, a bit like the "knuckle walking" chimpanzees. The head is massive and particularly developed ears. The fleece, consisting of long, fine hair is carefully licked every morning because it retains the dew.

Ecology and ethology: This bat has kept the blood-sucking regime of its cousin from the 21st century. Nomadic and solitary, it hunts at night in search of fresh blood. Every individual has an extensive exploration area. Prey is detected by the use of sound and using infrared sensors around the nose. Once identified, they are stunned to punch and drained of blood. It usually hunts Talpidornis but is able to hunt larger prey as well.
