The Chupacabra is a creature in mythology and is studied by cryptozoologists around the world. Its name is Spanish for "Goat Sucker."
The first reported Chupacabra attack was in March 1995 in Puerto Rico when a farmer found eight of his sheep dead and completely drained of blood. He found puncture marks on the chest of each victim. The most common description of chupacabras is a reptile-like being, appearing to have leathery or scaly greenish-gray skin and sharp spines or quills running down its back. This form stands approximately 3 to 4 feet (1 to 1.2 m) high, and stands and hops in a similar fashion to a kangaroo. In at least one sighting, the creature was reported to hop 20 feet. This variety is said to have a dog or panther-like nose and face, a forked tongue and large fangs. It is said to hiss and screech when alarmed, as well as leave behind a sulfuric stench When it screeches, some reports assert that the chupacabras' eyes glow an unusual red which gives the witnesses nausea. Another description of chupacabras, although not as common, describes a strange breed of wild dog. This form is mostly hairless and has a pronounced spinal ridge, unusually pronounced eye sockets, fangs, and claws. It is claimed that this breed might be an example of a dog-like reptile. Unlike conventional predators, the chupacabras is said to drain all of the animal's blood (and sometimes organs) usually through two holes in the shape of an upside-down triangle or through one or two holes. An even less common eyewitness account has described it to be a heavy creature, the size of a bear. Two reports during 2010 stated to have found, and killed, chupacabras, one in Kentucky and one in Texas.
On the news, reporters claimed that the Chupacabra was simply an unknown animal. A sort of "coyote-dog" hybrid.
