It is well known that vampires can turn into bats and creatures of other shapes and sizes. This chapter looks at how that might be achieved without breaking any fundamental laws of physics. Could they be using some kind of disguise or camouflage? Or perhaps there are other reasons for how the association between vampires and certain animals came about. It could be that vampires have qualities or behaviours that are more like certain animals. Certain animals are also associated with disease and its spread. Some of these diseases, such as rabies, have particularly strong links to vampirism because of the animals that transmit it and the symptoms they display.
