A strange creature nicknamed "the Gargoyle" has reportedly attacked several animals and even people in Puerto Rico.

The creature has been described by some in a similar manner to the infamous Chupacabra while others believe it is something else entirely and that it resides in an abandoned sugar mill somewhere in Barrio Ensenada.

"A strange creature with wings resembling those of a bat and which has been dubbed “the Gargoyle” has attacked several animals and even a human, according to reports issued by residents of Guánica."

They didn't really describe it much. Just that it has bat wings. It's hard to go by that.

My fourwinged bird hypothesis fits, a former web footed diving bird which has now evolved a webfootwing propulsion technique. Feathered wings upfront and two batlike wings at the rear. The middle rear digit would be extended in forcful flight but fold back up the outside of the rear leg during the pull-in phase and also when the bird is perched, therefore leaving a hooflike two toed track in snowy rooftops etc. The bending back of the rear middle digit would also explain the "click, click, clicking" as it walked across a hard flat roof.

It's funny, if you were to ask me if I believed this story I would laugh and pat you on the head and make some sort of psudo sarcastic comment insinuating that the question was ridiculous. But if you followed thatquestion by asking me to come with you to that sugar mill to help prove it was nonsense I'd stammer some ridiculous excuse and go hide under my bed. Say what you want , this story is creepy as hell

So no need for the snide comments. And actually your bat idea is not bad, although I would rather go for a rabid none indigenous bat, like for example a bat of the genus Pteropus, belonging to the Megachiroptera... [More]
