ABOUT

The Jupiter bloodsucker, also known as the vampire plant, is a seemingly ordinary plant. A creature looking closely at the roots may notice that the stems are transparent and that blood seems to course through them. The vines are lined with leaves, and on the underside of each leaf are many small but very sharp, hollow thorns. The plant stabs these thorns into a victim to siphon off the creature’s blood. The Jupiter bloodsucker attacks with its vines, trying to grapple a foe with the ropy vine and then gulp down its blood through the leaves. At the same time, leaves cover the victim’s face to smother it to prevent it from escaping the plant’s weak grip.
