Jaracas or Jaracacas live in Brazil.

This vampire might be the only one that scares me!

That’s saying something isn’t it.

So why am I afraid of the Jaracas?

Because when it hunts it takes the shape of a snake!

Yes a SNAKE!!!!! I don’t like snakes. Nina, this is what most of my nightmares consist of. Vampire snakes!

Just in case this hasn’t sunk in yet . . . . . . VAMPIRE SNAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, now that I’ve done my heebie jeebie dance.

The Jaraca attacks breastfeeding women while they sleep. When it attacks a man it bites the upper arm. It takes a small amount of blood that won’t kill the man.

But. . .
It also craves breast milk. When hunting for milk it will slither… (heebie jeebie dance) between a nursing mother and her child while they sleep. As it drinks from the woman’s breast it slips the tip of its tail into the baby’s mouth (another heebie jeebie dance).


To keep the baby from crying and thus giving it more time to feed.

Victims grow weak, and won’t recover until the Jaraca moves to its next village and victim.

It can’t be destroyed, but can be chased away. Praying to Catholic saints having a Catholic Priest bless the victim. There are ancient spells, incantations and talismans that can be made or bought to keep it away.

No Pictures……I don’t like snakes!!!!!


A Hungarian Vampire known as the Nora is humanoid but moves on all fours. It’s also bald and invisible.
Motorcycle Details

How do they know it’s bald and crawls? I’m not sure, but I don’t want to find out for sure.

The Nora attacks disrespectful women. It drinks their blood and breast milk.

If you’re worried about the Nora to protect yourself from an attack rub some garlic paste all over your breasts.

The surest way to protect one’s self is to never become a prostitute. Spectaculation has arised stating this was an attempt to explain STDs.


Today, we’ll look at the Banshee.
“Wait, I know about Banshees they aren’t vampires!” I can hear you saying.
Oh, just you wait; you will have your eyes opened soon enough. You will wish you never read this post.
There’s still time for you to run a way and hide.

Are you ready to get on with today’s Vampire Wednesday?
All right then, here we go.

Green Banshee

Green Banshee

The Banshee is now considered a type of Fay (fairy) with vampire tendencies. I never knew Banshee’s had vampire tendencies.
She wears a green dress and grey cloak, her long white hair is loose so it can blow in the wind
Or so says my legends.
A bit about her history before though, she was once believed to be an ancestor spirit that wailed to foretell the upcoming death of one of five major families: The Kavanaghs, The O’Brien’s, The O’Connor’s, The O’Gradys and The O’Neill’s.
Those who hear her wailing cry fear that someone in the family will die the next night.

Did you know that you could come across a banshee washing her shrouds at a riverbank? She’ll be naked of course. If you do find her while she washes, don’t run away. That will just make her mad!
Her long pendulous breast will get in her way. She’ll swing them over her shoulder, and now is your chance. Sneak up to her and pretend to suckle from her breast. Tell her she is your foster mother, and she should accept you. She will answer any question you have.

You could capture her and demand an answer by pointing your sword at her. Now it would be much cooler and much nicer if you convince her she’s your mother, instead of threatening her life, unlife. Whatever you get the point.


If you find her washing and she sees you first! She may tell you she’s washing the shirt of an enemy. You have to give her a name of one of your enemies. Don’t stop her from her chore or your enemy may die the following night.
You have to give her a name or she’ll attack you and drain you of your blood.
Hummm, drinking your blood, sounds like a vampire to me.

When she’s not washing, she hunts the hills near the lakes and rivers, she’s hunting young men, she’ll take him to a secluded place and drink all of his blood.
Here you’ve been reading waiting to see how a Banshee was in my Vampire post.
Now you know.
