Have you heard of the Chupacabra ("goat sucker")? You probably have; it's gained tons of popularity in the last decade because the Internet spread the stories around quite quickly.

If it's the Chupacabra you've been learning about, then you've been pretty much learning wrong. First things first, the name's not even correct. According to the original reports of the creature in Puerto Rico of 1995, it was called a Chupacabras, with an S on the end, plural and singular.

You probably know that the Chupacabras feeds on the blood of livestock, too. Sorry to say, you're pretty much wrong about that too. Originally, Chupacabras fed on the milk of goats' utters. Hence the name "goat sucker".

If you already knew this, congratulations, you're a true cryptozoologist. If you didn't know this, don't blame yourself; most people don't. But why were people being told these myths?

The first true reports of Chupacabras took place in Puerto Rico in 1995. They were about, 4 feet tall, skinny, hairy, stood on two feet, had scaly skin, huge lidless red or yellow eyes, spikes going down their spine, two long fangs, muscular hind legs, a slit for a mouth without lips, and clawed hands; resembling a gargoyle in a way. Puerto Ricans believed Chupacabras to be either extraterrestrials, or a product a genetic experiment from the El Yunque mountains by the US government. Over time, legends of the creature spread to Mexico and Latin America. When the stories spread, so did false information. The name "goat sucker" was confused, and people would say they sucked blood from goats, not their milk, and that caught on. And when people saw the word "Chupacabras" they immediately thought there was an S on the end because it was plural, unaware that it was also singular.

People in Mexico and Latin America now had this information: there was blood sucking monster among them called the "Chupacabra". When livestock was found dead, drained of its blood, they naturally blamed the "Chupacabra". The Chupacabras seen here looked like mangy coyotes with fangs and a disproportional body. I believe that this is not the Chupacabras of Puerto Rico, but possibly an entirely new blood-sucking cryptid. Sightings of this cryptid continue to this day, although they were most popular in 1996, the year after Puerto Rican Chupacabras were fist seen. As for the Puerto Rican Chupacabras, they are seen very rarely these days. Maybe they went back to their own planet, or the government got rid of them.

How did I come across this information? Loren Coleman, the worlds current leading cryptozoologist himself. He told me about this at first when I visited his museum, the International Cryptozoology Museum, in Portland, Maine. Then I did a little more research myself to help support the claim.

The Chupacabras have started spread around the world & evolve to suit their new environments. In Australia there are two new speices of the Chupacabras

The Goobledok


The John Howard



Of course I could be wrong & this just one new variant of the species after all, because both pictures look very much alike when examined closely.

It goes back much farther than 1995. I can remember an early 1960's episode of BONANZA where mention was made of chupacabras.
So the shows writers either made it up then, or referenced something from even earlier.

Goatsuckers on Bonanza

That's a very old fake, from what I know, it's either a deer, or completely photoshopped in, I used to have the original back in like 04 lol.

Thanks for starting this thread.
It has become quite annoying seeing people refer to the "hairless dog" animals as Chupacabras.
Ill be interested to see where this thread goes.

Cheers

The first image you've shown I will keep an open mind to, although the second one's rear end looks simlar to a donkey and the head could simply be distortion due to movement of the animal when the photo was taken.

The third is a dog, a dog that fell victim to mange before it died. Possibly a domestic dog gone wild, or a dog/coyote cross, I don't doubt this happens from time to time.

The second image looks more like a hooved animal than a carnivore, the way it's running is more reminisent of a donkey or zebra than a dog like creature.

Could we please stop all the pictures of dogs with mange? It's getting so ridiculous.

Ive always enjoyed lookin into cryptids but the chupacabras has never been one of my favourites, it seems like every picture turns out to be a mangey dog or racoon. The same with the montauk monster, every beach in America seems to have had one of them washed onto its shores.

Yeah poor babies being locked up. :[

However, i understand that its needed for examination but they'll probably hurt it with their tests. Anyways, yes that is what was shown on monster quest
