Event Details

Quench a thirst you didn’t even know you had in Bloodsuckers: Legends to Leeches, a ROM original exhibition where nature and culture truly collide.

From leeches to lampreys, blood feeders are abundant in nature. And while their thirst can annoy or horrify, their behaviour has fascinated humans throughout the ages. As nature’s vampires, they take blood, our very life source, for their own survival, yet they have given back by inspiring the story of Dracula, the legend of the Chupacabra and the practice of bloodletting.

Sink your teeth into Bloodsuckers: Legends to Leeches and explore the intricacies, evolution, and interconnected world of blood-feeding organisms, and the myths, legends and pop culture they have influenced around the world and across time.
