I don't think so. Wolves can be immortal, but they don't drink blood. And for vampires I think it's more of the venom that immortalizes them. Blood is just a response of their body.

Wolves, if they eat raw, are, in a way drinking blood. If they kill another animal to eat there is plenty of blood in the raw meat. Remember when Jacob and Leah ate together in BD.

I have a venom question: Would venom kill Nessie, or turn her into a monster?

nessie is non venomous.

so that brings me to another question - since nessie is non venomous, she would have a much harder time eating her prey, yes? since she cannot paralyze her prey?

Renesmee is non-venomous but she still has the razor sharp teeth and the speed and the strength of a vampire.
Their venom helps them to attract their prey (humans), remember how Edward's scent always dazzled Bella.
So, I think if Renesmee is only preying on animals, she will not need to attrack them.
She can use her razor sharp teeth and strenght to kill them. Vamps venom helps to trap not kill.

As far as if she were bitten by another vamp??? We need to ask SM that one.

I would like to thank my friend QUEENIE for these answers!!!

But that doesn't mean it's the blood that gives them immortality. They don't need to eat while in wolf form, and so could never eat raw meat if they didn't want to. Remember how grossed out Leah was by it? I doubt she would have eaten raw meat if there had been any other choice.

Nope...blood does not make the wolves immortal, shape shifting does. You are correct.All is was saying was that they do consume blood if they choose to eat in wolf form. Sorry if I wasn't clear.

but she's very strong with sharp teeth. she isn't as strong as a vampire but almost quite so. like Nahuel. but her teeth are pretty sharp...

At least one thing makes sense about Nessie: she has brown eyes. I think it's funny how Bella always imagined she would have a boy with green eyes, because Edward had green eyes as a human, but everyone knew that Nessie would have Bella's eyes
