Chupacabra



A legendary cryptozoological creature reported in parts of South America and Mexico. The Chupacabra is believed to be a predatory creature attributed with the killing of goats and other farm animals giving it a name that means 'goat sucker' in Spanish. Descriptions of the creature vary but it is frequently described as a short lizard-like animal with large eyes and a series of spines running down its back. Some believe it to be an extraterrestrial life form.

Recent media coverage


The Chupacabra has been featured in media for some time including in TV shows such as the X-Files. More recently there have been a series of claims from local news stations claiming to have photographs and footage of alleged Chupacabra corpses however these invariable end up being coyotes, dogs or other wild animals suffering from mange giving them an unusual appearance. So far no conclusive evidence for the existence of the beast has ever been found.
