An island of 'Vampires'

The forests of Puerto Rico are said to be home to the infamous and enigmatic goat-sucking Chupacabra.

Is it an alien ? A top secret government experiment gone awry ? Whatever the true nature of the creature might be, one thing is certain: it's by no means a recent phenomena as many believe. Evidence and accounts of this blood-sucking monster date back to the 1960s when a guard at the Arecibo Radio Telescope reported seeing a black cloaked figure that he later identified as the creature after a cow was found nearby mysteriously drained of blood.

"For years, sensational and sinister stories have surfaced from the forests and lowlands of Puerto Rico that tell of a strange and lethal creature roaming the landscape by night and day, while striking overwhelming terror into the hearts of the populace."

Yeah but have you ever seen a flying-glowbird- two- legged-dogman-pretending to be a werewolf-with mange riding a hyrax? Then and only then my friend will you ever be able to say that you have truly lived. Stay thirsty my friend, stay thirsty. Dude! You obviously haven't seen the suit wearing, flying-glowbird- two- legged-dogman-pretending to be a werewolf-with mange riding a hyrax in black and white looking over my shoulder in my profile pic....

1331822989[/url]' post='4232863']It could be argued that rum and ganja (or some other combination of mind altering substances) plus a public at large that is willing to accept tales with no evidence could probably account for a healthy portion of cryptid mythology. Fair enough though, being off your trolley at least gives an excuss for what one thinks they see compared to what one is convinced of when their imagination plays out. I recently changed to synthetic jah" .,. "medicinal" Still less tar, etc. If you cant see it or touch it or have actual proof of something, then It's only in head!

This is the original reptilian chupacabras. Before it was tagged onto hairless coyotes. Yes I agree, I read about something similar with a deion almost exactly the same.

It's TWO cryptids being combined as usual to give an over complicated picture! The winged flying 'lizard-bird' is the cattle blood drinker and the other mammal/were-creature is a four legged vegetarian/fish eater imv.

Puerto Rico, red eyes, spikes running down spine, claws and fangs. Sounds like one of the classical chupacabra. The reptilian ones I mean. Not the normal dog like one.

*Looks at title then looks at what it's about* Ya, with debation, Vampires isn't the Chupacabra.... Since when did vampires have spines running down their backs. Not even classical bamps did. Plus since when are they Puerto Rican?
