Reptilian Features
Bat-like Wings

Vampires or Culebras, as they are typically called, are a semi-reptilian race of immortal and feral creatures that feed on blood. In the series, they are people given the condition from the bite of another culebra.

Vampires are somehow related or descended from the Aztec snake gods, particularly a goddess.

Culebras originated from Xibalba, the first realm, where they were nothing more than slaves to the demons.

The Nine Lords of the night were faithful men and women who worshiped the serpent god (Amaru) and came from the first realm. The oldest of the Nine Lords (Amancio Malvado) sacrificed a woman into the pit transforming her into the ‘mistress of the night’ (culebra) and the harbinger of the next realm.


According to Professor Tanner (a.k.a Sex Machine) these vampires look more like snakes than bats and have a reptilian form. These vampires are from Mesoamerican, Mayan or Aztec regions, unlike other vampires in the world, due to their appearance of reptiles (in other regions, vampires looks like rats or bats). These vampires have monstrous faces, cone-shaped fangs that fold up against the gums, flaked skin, vertical pupils, red/orange/yellowish glowing eyes (though Professor Tanner demonstrated having light blue eyes when transformed) and claws. Some vampires that were large in their human form become horned and burly. Some vampires have hardened scales while others have flaked skin like other snakes.

The blood of the living is the main component of a vampire’s diet whether from the source, from a cup or container, or from the flesh of humans, which vampires make into a raw delicacy. It is undetermined when vampires need to feed, how long they can go without feeding (as Carlos was trapped in the labyrinth for months presumably without a source for blood) and what ill affects it has on them if fail to feed, while it is known that they will lose themselves to their animal instincts and behavior due to their bloodlust. They can also consume human food, as seen when Sex Machine is eating a bowl of Frito pie, and when Richie Gecko is seen eating a steak/potato/vegetable dinner, but it’s uncertain whether they gain sustenance from it, or simply do it to pass as human.

Despite their monstrous traits, they still retain many human traits that allow them to further the illusion that they are normal humans, such as sweating and breathing. As such, they still need to sleep, which they do during the day time. Vampires even produce waste, as seen when a vampire urinated on Gonzalez and still grow hair like humans do, as seen when Carlos was shown to have grown a full beard and shaggy long hair after spending months in the labyrinth.


As far as we know, vampires were originally living humans until they were converted (also called being turned or sired) by another vampire. However it is possible that two vampires could produce a vampire in the typical way of human reproduction. A vampire who is responsible for a new vampire’s creation is called a sire. A new vampire is a fledgling or progeny. This creates a bloodline from sire to progeny, similar to a familial bond as the sire’s blood forever flows in the progeny’s veins.

In the series, vampires have a snake-like venom that is injected from their fangs into the human they turn and it gives the victim frightful and painful hallucinations, as well as giving them an agonizing fever and sickness, before they overcome their ailments and emerge completely transformed. When they are transformed, they change into their reptilian form and will mostly be feral if aroused by blood and will transform when blood is shed, while some of them are not as feral.

Powers & Abilities[]

Vampirism makes its victims immortal and gives them many supernatural powers.

  • Immortality — Vampires do not age beyond the point when they were turned, and are capable of living an indefinite lifespan. With certain exceptions and restrictions, vampires are essentially invulnerable to most conventional forms of fatality, they do not decay, and are immune to all earthly diseases and sickness.
  • Accelerated Healing — Vampires heal from physical wounds much faster than humans without any lingering side effects of such injuries. As such, they are naturally more resilient to injuries and seem to not require medical attention when they are injured, while feeding may allow them to heal and recover faster. In addition, chronic illnesses, such as poor vision, are immediately corrected. For example, Richie was shot in the hand and had a large hole that caused him immense pain if too much pressure was applied to it. Upon transformation, the large wound healed rapidly and his vision was heightened, no longer requiring him to wear glasses. Culebras are shown to heal from gunshot wounds,stab wounds. Richie was even able to heal from being set on fire by Seth. Santánico was able to regenerate half of her skull being set on fire and even regenerated an eye. It is even stated by Tanner that he even regrew his penis after turning into a culebra.
  • Superhuman Strength — Vampires can strike, grab, restrain or dismember their prey with inhuman strength. With their strength, they are capable of easily defeating grown men, and sometimes other vampires, fairly quickly in direct physical combat, though burly vampires are a bit harder to kill, much like a large human. A vampire’s strength increases with age; the 1,000 year old Santánico was able to eviscerate humans much bigger than her with ease, swing her hands through a person and maul them in one strike, and throw them with one hand across a room. Also, Carlos casually overpowered and killed two humans with his fangs and pushed Gonzalez through the air, although Santánico’s age makes her vastly stronger than him. While vampires are stronger than humans, it is possible for humans, especially trained fighters to defeat them. Vampires that are centuries old can exert the force of a moving vehicle, regardless of their size or appearance, while younger vampires have greater strength than humans, they are vastly weaker than older vampires and can be more easily slain. Their are some instances where young vampires have defeated older ones, if they are less feral than the older ones and know how to fight without going into feral hazes and becoming blood crazed. Scott in the series, killed a group of vampires in a minute with his fangs and mauled them to death with ease.
  • Superhuman Senses — Vampires, usually when thirsting for blood, will experience states of heightened sensory sensitivity. In this state they can hear the heartbeat of another person, and see with greater saturation, allowing them to see the blood pumping through a being’s veins. Vampires are also able to smell blood, and become aroused when it is shed in their presence. Vampires can identify others by scent, as well as the taste of their blood. When turned into a culebra, defects such as incorrective eyesight are repaired and their vision is heightened.
  • Telepathy — Santánico Pandemonium was able to communicate with Richard Gecko by the use of telepathy, as well as hypnotize, entrance and see, feel and know what others know just by being in their presence. Carlos already knew Kyle’s name and everything Kyle knew and experienced after being in his presence, though it may have also been caused when he fed on Kyle. A vampire that so much as touches a human will instantly know everything that human knows. Culebras are also able to see, hear and even feel the past of the blood they’ve consumed. With obsidian, they can share memories with others. When feeding on humans or even Xibalbans, the culebra can access the special or unique traits. An example of this, Richard Gecko acquired the Demon Jaguar tracking and combat skills by drinking the female warrior’s blood.
  • Illusion Casting — Santánico Pandemonium was able to appear only in the sight of Richard Gecko and causing to see feel and know things that other knew by her telepathic guidance. Her telepathic/empathic ability to feel, see, and know what Richie knew allowed her to follow him. Other culebra use this by consuming the souls of a person. This is a form of illusion casting as they are projecting an image of that person.
  • Shapeshifting — Vampires can shape-shift into a reptilian form that is stronger and far more feral than their human form or their regular vampire form. It causes them to mentally degenerate into mindless animals that can be killed easier as they are not as smart in a fight and are more blood crazed, though when partially transformed, they are simply more aggressive and can speak, while other are more like hungry zombies and even hunt in hoards or packs. They either have flaked or scaly skin with sometimes hardened scales and horns. It can allow a younger vampire to overcome and kill a group of other vampires and slaughter them in a minute if they are able to control themselves when transformed. The oldest of vampires are more adept in this and Scott was the only young vampire. They can also change into their victims, while this may be a form of telepathy or illusion casting, since their clothes change along with them. Carlos changed only his clothes and he saw himself as himself but with the officers clothes, while his reflection and everyone else saw and heard him as the officer. They can also partial shift their eyes or project their fangs.
  • Flight — Santánico was the only vampire to demonstrate having wings. While in a fight and not wanting her enemies to escape, her wings grew out of her back and lifted her quickly into the air.
  • Wall-Crawling — Vampires are capable of scaling on surfaces opposite to the ground and on walls, possibly with their claws. They retreated the first time they fought the humans and crawled onto the walls like insects and into wholes in the walls and ceilings, leaving the remaining humans trapped in the bar lobby.
  • Special Abilities — Richie stated that some Culebras can have a special ability, such as Santánico growing a pair of bat-like wings, Carlos able to crush someone like a boa constrictor and Amancio growing two extra pairs of appendages that look similar to a praying mantis. A vampire was able to spit venom into the faces of Santánico Pandemonium and Richie Gecko, sedating them both, which Amancio Malvado again used on Santánico.


If vampires are killed, they and anything they wear turns to desert-like dust with no trace that it was ever a creature. As of season 2, vampires are incinerated into embers when they are killed, along with at least most of what they are wearing at the time, while some accessories, like glasses, are left behind.

  • Sunlight — Direct, strong sunlight burns their skin and, if fully immersed in it, they will die and turn to dust along with what they wear. The touch of direct sunlight will either cause their skin to burn in smoke or be set ablaze. Only direct sunlight can harm a vampire, while one that remains in shade or shadows will remain unaffected by the sun. However, if a vampire has recently fed, it is able to walk in sunlight temporarily.
  • Decapitation— Cutting off a vampire’s head will not directly kill a vampire, but seems to simulate a state similar to death. It’s presumed that if the head is reattached to the body, it will regenerate.
  • Heart Destruction— Damaging or destroying their heart, the organ of blood and the source of their strength, usually by means of stabbing it, kills them and turns them and whatever they were into nothing but dust.
  • Culebra Venom — It appears that snake venom or maybe actual culebra venom incapacitate vampires, as demonstrated when Carlos poisoned the goblets of the councilors to the Nine Lords of the Night by having snakes spew venom into the goblets. Minutes after the counselors consumed the poisoned blood from the goblets, they choked and couldn’t move and were paralyzed, allowing Carlos to kill several of them while they sat helpless at the dinner table. A vampire was able to sedate both Santánico Pandemonium and Richie Gecko by spitting venom in their faces, which Amancio Malvado also used this on Santánico later on.
  • Xibalban Weapons— A fatal injury, like slashed throat, from a weapon of Xibalba is capable of killing both demons and culebras.

Culebra is a popular weekend tourist destination for Mainland Puerto Ricans, Americans and residents of Vieques. Because of the «arid» nature of the island there is no run-off from rivers or streams resulting in very clear waters around the archipelago.

Culebra has many beautiful beaches including Flamenco Beach (Playa Flamenco). The beach extends for a mile of white coral sand and is framed beautifully by arid tree-covered hills. The beach is also protected by the Department of Natural and Environmental Resources as a Marine Wildlife Reserve.

Great sailing in the Spanish Virgin Islands. Winds mostly from the E and NE at a steady 10+ knots. Watch for reefs and fish pots, mosquitoes, and sun burn. People are generally friendly, but remember this is a third world area in State’s clothing. Always start a conversation with asking how the person is doing, in Spanish if possible: «Buenos dias. Como estas?» Then ask your question.


See Puerto Rico.

Modern Robinson shared the story of survival on a deserted island: without tools, clothes, medicines and provisions

The traveler spent more than a year on the deserted part of Culebra Island (Puerto Rico) in wild conditions

Evgenia Frusevich

Famous travel blogger Chad Zuber decided to test his endurance. For a whole year he lived on an uninhabited part of the island in the Caribbean. The man managed to build a dwelling out of nothing and even made wine from improvised means.

The only thing he took with him from his past life was a water filter and a GoPro with a smartphone to talk about his adventure on YouTube. It is reported by Medialeaks.

Blogger Chad Zuber started video diary of his YouTube adventures a few years ago, during which time he managed to visit Brazil, Mexico, Alaska and the Puerto Rican island of Culebra.

Chad is fond of tourism in the wild, so no guides and excursions, only survival and only hardcore. In each of the countries, the blogger found a dangerous place and was left alone with nature.

Judging by the videos of the blogger, he spent more than a year on the deserted part of Culebra Island (Puerto Rico) in the wild.

He did not take with him warm clothes, food, medicines, tools or provisions. The first months he lived under an awning, while preparing for the construction of the house.

Almost like Robinson Crusoe, only he kept a diary the old fashioned way, instead of uploading videos to a YouTube channel.

The first task that the traveler faced was to organize a roof over his head.

The island has clay soil, from which the blogger made original bricks. Then he found a flat area, filled it with clay and began laying out the walls.

The entire construction process fit in an hour-long video, but even such a small house had to spend more than one day. Four months of work — and you have your own housing.

The man ate vegetables and fruits, cacti and eggs of local birds. He also hunted for food.

He made a primitive bow with arrows and a fishing rod. By the way, he cooked the caught fish according to an exquisite recipe: he coated it with clay and baked it in an oven that he built himself.

The only thing is that the blogger passed the water through a special disinfecting filter that he brought with him.

To wash himself, a man dug bulbous plants, kneaded them into a pulp, added water and thus obtained a soapy solution.

He also made dishes himself and built his own bed.

The guy did not forget about regular physical education. He cast pancakes for the barbell from clay, and instead of a neck, he had an ordinary stick. There are savages in the impromptu gym and dumbbells — also made of clay.

A year of being alone, even if you’re an athlete, can make you miss drinking alcohol, and Chad didn’t miss the opportunity to experiment with making strong drink.

He placed sour berries in an empty gourd, added wild honey and water. Three weeks later, the tasting began.

«The drink turned out to be stronger than I expected, and quite tasty. I got a little drunk on it, felt very relaxed and wanted to sleep, but I don’t know how many degrees there were. I will experiment further, — the blogger told his subscribers» .

A question that worried many: if a guy lives without the benefits of civilization, how does he make a video? Solar battery and GoPro. He also had a phone with him, from which he conducted live broadcasts for subscribers and shared videos on his channel.

According to Chad’s latest Instagram posts, he is currently traveling through the American Mojave Desert. If a catastrophe occurs on the planet, this guy will definitely not disappear.

Recall how Edgley Ross swim around the UK and broke 4 world records.

As the Znayu portal reported, these seriously ill people decided to live to the fullest until the last moment. They have a lot to learn.

Also «Znayu» wrote the story of Lewis Gordon Pugh, making incredible swims to save nature.
