The Lobishomen is a vampire from Brazilian folklore. This vampire preys mostly on women.

The vampire does not actually kill its victims, but it draws small amounts of blood from the victims. After the attack, the woman would begin to show nymphomaniac tendencies.

It’s said that the creature was created by witchcraft or from parents who were improperly cohabitating.

There are some stories that say the Lobishomen was more connected with werewolves than vampires.

The Brazilian vampire is described as a small, stumpy, and hunch-backed monkey-like being. It had a yellow face, bloodless lips, black teeth, a bushy beard, and plush-covered feet.

In order to destroy a lobishomen was to cut it with steel. But, one had to be careful not to touch the blood because it was very fatal.
