How to use "Zalophus" in context?
Zalophus is a genus of the family Vampires, containing the only species in the genus, the false vampire bat. The species is found in North America, where it roosts in caves.
The false vampire bat is the only species of zalophus. It is closely similar to the Mexican vampire bat, and can usually only be distinguished from that species by the size of its ears. Like all vampire bats, it has a large head and small wings. It feeds on blood from other animals, but is also capable of sucking human blood (although this has not been recorded in North America).
