I always suspected it was real, and I always suspected it was a breed of dog as the Texas version of the cryptid describes it. I don't know how it changed looks from South America, being a spiked back flying reptile, to Mexico where it climbs trees and still reptilian but almost monkey like and then to the US where it is a dog. Turns out a species of dog, Xolos, might be the suspected animal. I am sure at some point one of you found this story already and it might be on here already but here it is again if that be the case and if not here it is for the first time. Enjoy and please tell me what you think of this claim.

Its interesting but I still wonder how a breed of dog.could suck.blood like that out of its victims. And the different sightings such.as spikes and sulphur smells after a chupacabra sighting is sometimes followed by ufos. Some say the chupacabra is the aliens pet :)

The chupacabra myth was always a reptile-insect looking thing that sucked fluids out of an animal with fangs.

Wasn't until a few mangy dog videos came out that cryptid wackos started changing the description. IMO

It's a lot easier to film a mangy dog/fox from a distance and claim it's a cryptid than try and catch footage of a reptile-insect creature. Anything to make a hoax easier.

Total baloney.  It's a mangy canine and nothing more.

I don't know about the Mexican and South American Chupacabra, I still think they are just stoner trips, lol, but this helps to explain the American Chupacabra.

Chupacabra has been sited in Mexico, reportedly, and strange deaths of live stock in Texas in the US has made some believe it is in the US now though sitings are always dog like in appearance. I think this dog and chupacabra are unrelated but I do believe there is a strange new dog breed running around.

I gotta friend from Tennessee who claims to have seen a Chupacabra in his area.  Granted ive seen the grainy pics he took and it looked like a dying raccoon to me, but its pretty wide spread anymore

When you know what a man loves, you know what can kill him

Exactly. It's like not being able to get any credible evidence or photos of the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland, so all of a sudden you start calling diseased turtles in China "Nessies" and everybody goes, "oh yeah..."

Besides, pretty sure early descriptions of the chupacabra were based off of the alien from the movie Species, so it's not even original. I'm a silly man who thinks there's a tiny possiblity that some crptids might exist, but the chupacabra isn't one of them. Unless mangy dogs and coyotes are now being called chupacabras, in which case, it does 100%.

It's a classic case of moving the goal posts to suit your argument.

However.......


Isn't interesting how the description of this creature are so radically different than the actual creature? Has anyone else noticed this?

I think a lot of it has to do with the sad state of journalism and science reporting.

Since this strange new breed is a dog without fur, I think it's simply a dog infested with mange.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.
