What is El Chupacabra?
El Chupacabra - Means "the goat
sucker" in Spanish.
Named because of the way it sucked all the blood from Puerto Rican goats,
the Chupacabra has been leaving fear in its tracks for many years now.
First spotted in Puerto Rico in 1994, the Chupacabra has since migrated
off the island and has recently been spotted in many locations including
South America as well as the US. Although it was named because of its choice
of goat-blood as a meal, the Chupacabra has reportedly attacked and devoured
the blood of a wide variety of animals including dogs and sheep. As far
as we know, there have yet to be any human fatalities.
Due to the distinct technique the strange animal has of killing its prey,
it is very easy to tell if the Chupacabra was involved in an animals death.
Animals are found with puncture wounds in their neck and most of their blood
removed. Often, the victim's organs have disappeared even though the only
wound is a small hole in the animal's neck. Reports of laser-like cuts on
the victim's ears are also common.
Although some people say they have seen the Chupacabra's tracks, in many
cases there are no signs of blood or tracks around the dead animals.
It is hard to describe the appearance
of El Chupacabra because sightings greatly differ. Most say it is either
gray or green. Some say it has a large lizard-like tongue, others say it
A bipedal creature (one that stands upright like a human), the Chupacabra
has had many sightings where its height was reported to be anywhere from
3 and 6 feet tall. Some say it walks, some say it flies, and some say it
has a kangaroo hop.

Where did it come from?
Like the descriptions of El Chupacabras'
appearance, people's ideas of its origin widely vary. Many say it's a new
species, or a relative to the panther. More eccentric scholars say it is
a dinosaur or an alien. Another theory is that there is a portal to another
dimension that stretches from Puerto Rico across to South America.
Our theory is that an alien spacecraft contained El Chupacabras' as pets
or for study, and they somehow escaped during an accident, or a crash. You might have your own theory. If you do email
it to us, we'll be glad to read it and we'll probably post it in the news
if it is really interesting.
