El Chupacabra by Pachycephalosunshine El Chupacabra by Pachycephalosunshine
el chupacabra "the goat sucker"
first reported attacks were in 1995 in puerto rico,
when 8 sheep were found dead, all drained of blood.
sightings are still centralized in the southern parts of north america.
the chupacabra has been seen in many different places in many different forms,
but i believe there are three more common forms that are seen most often.

traditional appearance:
sightings have ranged in hights between 3' and 7' tall.
but this form is usually seen walking on two legs,
and sometimes hopping.
usually green in color.
almost always has spines or quills on its back.
sometimes seen with wings.

dog-like appearance:
these are usually seen in the texas area,
and end up being proven to be nothing more than a coyote with mange.
usually grey or black in color.
many times they have been reported as having much longer hind legs than front.
usually seen as larger or wider than an average dog.

marsupial appearance:
the smallest and most uncommon form.
some sightings and photos show something much smaller than the normal sightings:
small snout, large eyes, long tail.
usually have small human-like hands.
bodies of these creatures are usually proven to be raccoons, possums or something related.

some features appear in all forms,
red eyes, hairless skin, sharp teeth and long claws.

for :iconcryptozoologygroup:'s contest.
i used to watch monster quest and took a shining to this little guy. =D
recently, my dad told me that a friend of his once saw and shot one of the dog-like chupacabras.
i wish his friend was still alive so i could ask him about it...

thanks so much for all the views/faves/comments!

well to be fair to some of the 'Texabras', other tests did suggest SOME were highly unusual hybrids between a coyote and wolf, the teeth were longer than normal; and the act of loosing all hair so suddenly with no traces of mange is odd. Nothing nearly as strange as the Puerto Rico monster, but odd nontheless
