Vampire bats were studied by fifth years in Defence Against the Dark Arts in the 1991-1992 school year, which was taught by Professor Quirinus Quirrell at the time. As Dolores Umbridge said in 1995 that Quirrell's classes were the only ones which would pass a Ministry inspection, vampire bats were likely part of the curriculum approved by the Ministry of Magic.
