NORTH AMERICAN VAMPIRE
WARNING – This species of Vampire has poisonous fangs which can paralyse humans.
When they change from human to Vampire, their eyes glow and appear red on the outside of their irises, with yellow in the middle. Also, their foreheads become pronounced giving this species along with their glowing reddish eyes, a more ‘demonic’ appearance. Their upper canine teeth become long and sharp like the fangs on a snake. The venom is secreted by the fangs, which can paralyse humans for up to 3 days – if they survive an attack. The nails on the Vampire’s hands become longer and sharper.
The strength of a North American Vampire is fifteen times that of a human and they are the strongest of the species investigated by SSIT. They have lightening fast reflexes, although they are not as fast as European or South American Vampires. They can run up to speeds of 360 km/h in short bursts and cannot jump as high as their European 'cousins'.
Their longevity is 300 years and it's believed their life span is shorter than the other species because of their faster metabolic rate, which attributes to their greater strength. South American Vampires need to hunt every third day to survive. However, after drinking from another Vampire or a Werewolf, 7 days can pass before they have to hunt again. It's not uncommon that this species will hunt their own kind, or cannibalize their own coven.
North American Vampires can perform strenuous physical activity with ease. With their bloodlust, they relish killing their victims in as a violent way as possible. Unlike the European variety that use cunning and covert tactics when hunting; they prefer a ‘smash and grab’ approach. Often, news reports of highway car-jacking with the vehicles destroyed and the owners missing can be attributed to their destructive nature.

(Excerpt of the SSIT Reports on the Different Breeds of Werewolf, Separate Species of Vampire and Human/ Animal Shape Shifters)
SOUTH AMERICAN VAMPIRE
When a South American Vampire changes from human to other, their eyes turn completely red with their black pupils disappearing. All of their teeth become pointed and sharp and look similar to a piranha. This species of Vampire does not produce venom, however they rely on their teeth, nails and speed. The nails on the South American Vampire’s hands become long and sharp like small knives and are the strongest nails of all the species SSIT encountered.
The strength of a South American Vampire is ten times that of a human. Like their European cousins, they have supernaturally fast reflexes, which can be measured at the same rate as the speed of sound. However, South American Vampires are able to maintain this speed by running long distances, but they cannot jump the same heights a European Vampire can.
This species longevity may reach 400 years if they are successful in hunting. If they cannot feed on fresh blood at least once every 5 days, then their metabolic system, strength and life expectancy fails. Using their ability to take extremely long breaths, they can successfully hunt underwater. By utilizing their multiple sharp teeth, they aren't averse to masticating the flesh of their victims to squeeze out more blood. It is because of this that many humans who are dragged from rivers such as the Amazon, are accounted to have been the victims of a piranha attack instead.
South American Vampires are extremely sensitive to the cold, and are the most susceptible to frost bite. Only once did SSIT hear of an instance where three South American Vampires ventured into a cold habitat, when they came to hunt the Lokoti Werewolves in Alaska. It was said this occurred during the summer, with the long hours of daylight which warmed temperatures. Instead, this species prefer the hot jungles or other regions where it does not snow, in South America.
On this note, it's not uncommon to find South American Vampires in Mexico either. Those who reside in this country often prey upon animals to avoid detection and therefore destruction by humans. Domestic live stock, such as goats are chosen for their accessibility and then the El Chupacabra aka ‘the Mexican Goat Sucker’, is blamed instead.
