The Death Birds are vicious, bat-like creatures reported from the Congo. They have been reported sleep in caves during the day, only coming out at night to attack villagers in swarms, draining them of blood until they die. The Death Birds may be either an unknown species of giant vampire bat or a surviving species of small pterosaur, like Anurognathus or Jeholopterus.

In The Dinosaur Project (Film)Edit

After being awoken by a strange noise, Luke, using his night vision camera, sees the Death Birds outside. After Charlie accidently alerts them to their presence, the Death Birds begin to attack, causing the team to flee as the village is quickly overrun by the vampiric creatures. While fleeing, Liz is attacked and presumably killed by the Death Birds. They are not seen for the rest of the film.
