The Chupacabra, also known as El Chupacabra, or Chupacabras, is a blood sucking cryptid from Central America, as well as Texas, New Mexico, and other southern U.S. states. The name translates to "Goat Sucker". There are sightings in more northerly locations in the US, but these are hoaxes and misidentifications more often than they are down south.
Appearance & Description Edit
The Chupacabra is generally described as 3-5 feet tall, with green or yellow skin and clawed hands and feet. It can walk on both 2 feet or 4 feet, and many sightings say it has wings. The Chupacabra has a large head that conjures up images of Grey Aliens. It has rows of spines or bristles down its back, and has long fangs used to drain a victim's blood. Although it eats livestock, the Chupacabra has been known to attack people.
Very few theories rationally explain the Chupacabra; aside from hoaxes, an unknown, blood-sucking reptile species is a plausible one. Another, more popular idea is that this monstrosity is an alien, and almost more popular than that is a failed genetic experiment.
