El Chupacabra

The infamous goatsucker: El Chupacabra
El Chupacabra

It can change colors at will, has a hairy, reptilian body with spines all along its back and an obsession with blood. El Chupacabra translated into English means "the goat-sucker," because that's exactly what it does. El Chupacabra made its first appearance in the farmlands of Puerto Rico where it left tons of goats dead. All of the goats had been left fully intact, but were drained of all their blood.

El Chupacabra is said to be able to fly and is also able to blend into its surrounding by changing color just like a chameleon. At night El Chupacabra will be black or gray in color, while in the day it will change to a green or gray-green, similar to the vegetation around it.

Since its first attack on the Puerto Rican goats, El Chupacabra has attacked livestock all over North and South America, making its way as far as Chile in 2000. Its most destructive time was in the winter of 1995. There were 35 sightings in Cavanas, Puerto Rico in the span of only three months. 69 chickens, goats and ducks were also killed in Chupacabra-style in 1995 in Florida. Then in late 1996, Mexico experienced a rash of Chupacabra attacks.

So where did this vampire-like creature come from? There are many speculations as to the origin of El Chupacabra. One theory is that El Chupacabra is the abandoned pet of some extra-terrestrial life form that came to Earth a long time ago. Seems a little far-fetched but since no one has actually seen a Chupacabra, anything is possible.

Another Chupacabra theory that has been kicked around is that El Chupacabra is a NASA experiment gone bad. Some believe that NASA had been conducting some secret gene manipulation experiments on the island of Puerto Rico in the '50s and El Chupacabra was the result.

Last but not least, there is the wild dog theory. With this theory, El Chupacabra is nothing more than a wild dog feasting on local farmer's livestock.

So there you have the legend of El Chupacabra. Do you think there really is a bloodsucking creature dines on unsuspecting wild-life or is this entire story made-up? with your thoughts.
