General Info
Mythology {{{Mythology}}}

The Chupacabra is a legendary cryptid rumored to inhabit parts of the Americas. The name comes from the Spanish word that means "Goat Sucker". As it's name implies rumors of such a possible creature, came to be due to several instances in which livestock in rural areas were found dead, drained of blood with nothing but to puncture marks on carcases. These incidents are associated with relatively recent sightings of an unknown animal in Puerto Rico (where these sightings were first reported), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter's Latin American communities.

Appearance Edit

Physical descriptions of the creature vary. Eyewitness sightings have been claimed as early as 1995 in Puerto Rico, and have since been reported as far north as Maine, USA and as far south as Chile, and even being spotted outside the Americas in countries like Russia and the Philippines. It is supposedly a heavy creature, the size of a small bear, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail.

The sighting reports of chupacabras end up being uncorroborated eyewitness reports without evidence. Biologists and wildlife management officials view the chupacabras as a contemporary legend.

Popular Culture Edit

Films Edit

  • The 2003 animated film Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico features Chupacabra, but it resembles a purple Bigfoot.
  • When encountering Compsognathus in the 2009 comedy Land of the Lost, a character calls them Chupacabras.
  • While the creature doesn't appear, a Mexican character in the 2013 animated comedy Planes and it's sequel is named El Chupacabra.
