I have been studying Cryptozoology for many years, and I keep abreast of all the News articles and other reports regarding these creatures called; Cryptids. One particular creature that has been in the news a lot recently has been the Chupacabra, also called; The Goat Sucker.
Lately there have been reports stating that the mystery of the Chupacabra has been solved, and it is nothing more then a dog, coyote or some other well known animal that has scabies or mange, or another such condition that makes the animal lose it's hair.
These sightings have been documented and are fact, but these creatures are not the true beings known as the Chupacabras.Â True Chupacabra sightings started mainly in South American Countries, Puerto Rico, and Mexico in the early 1990's and slowly spread to the southern states of the USA.
The original, true Chupacabra creatures were reported as looking like bizarre alien like creatures, standing from 3 to 5 feet tall, and walking on 2 legs, not 4, like a dog, or coyote. They have large sharp spines or horn like protrusions like a porcupine, that run down the length of their backs. The eyes are very large, and actually shine or glow bright red in color. The glowing eyes does not seem to be caused by reflection but rather by some inner type of energy or bio-luminescence like that of a firefly.
Chupacabra walk upright like a human, and can also hop like a kangaroo, and they also have the ability to fly for short distances, using an unknown type of energy or ability. Â
Does the descriptions of the true Chupacabras, look or sound anything like a hairless canine or other such animal, of course not. So, let me state again, that the mystery of the Chupacabra has not been solved, in fact it's still as much a mystery as the elusive Bigfoot or any other such creature of Cryptozoology.
There is a website that describes the Chupacabra and numerous other creatures of Cryptozoology in detail, this website is called: Unknown Creatures and it may be found at this URL: http://www.unknown-creatures.com
