What is a chupacabra?

An unknown creature attacked eight sheep on a farm in Puerto Rico.

The Chupacabra is a creature that supposedly exists in North and South America, with reported sightings from Chile to Maine. Its name, Chupacabra, comes from a combination of the Spanish word chupar, which means to suck, and goat, which means goat. The creature has earned this ferocious title from reports that claim it sucks the blood of animals like goats and leaves small wounds on its victims.

DNA from an alleged chupacabra turned out to be a coyote with mange.

The chupacabra first made headlines in 1995, when reports emerged that an unknown creature had attacked eight sheep on a farm in Puerto Rico and drained their blood. Soon after, reports of similar attacks on animals began to pop up in the United States, Mexico, Nicaragua, Argentina, Panama, Brazil, Peru, and other countries.

Unlike other popular cryptids such as the Mothman and Bigfoot, the Chupacabra appears to have the most varied physical descriptions. Cryptozoology vampires, chupacabras, are described as reptilian creatures that measure about 0.9 to 1.2 m tall and have spines emerging from their spine to their tail. The Chupacabra has also been reported to hiss, jump a lot, and have large, glowing red eyes. Another common description of the Chupacabra portrays it as more of a hairless canine than a reptile. In 2004, DNA results from an alleged Chupacabra carcass in Texas supported this theory, as the results revealed that it was a mange coyote.

Chupacabras are said to attack livestock.

2006 was a busy year for the Chupacabra: with eyewitness reports claiming it had first appeared in Maine and even Central Russia. After a series of dog attacks were reported in Turner, Maine, a roadside carcass resembling a canine creature was discovered and found to be the culprit. However, the carcass was cleaned by scavengers before it could be analyzed. In Central Russia that same year, a wave of cattle raids occurred on 32 turkeys and 30 sheep, all of which were found to be drained of blood.

Theories about the genetic makeup and origin of the chupacabra vary. Some speculate that it is an undiscovered animal species, possibly related to canines, felines, reptiles, or a combination thereof. Others theorize that it is a dinosaur that somehow survived the prehistoric period. Perhaps the most eccentric theory is that it’s some sort of alien pet that survived a UFO crash near Puerto Rico and has since multiplied.
