El Chupacabra
EL CHUPACABRA
Rank: Schultz Jerza
Nominated by Jerza

Special Selection November 08

El Chupacabra is the South American equivalent of Sasquatch. That's the simplest way to describe it. The name translates litterally to "The Goatsucker", based on his legend as being a creature that preys on farmer's livestock. His legend first emerged in Puerto Rico in 1995, after eight sheep were found dead, each with three puncture wounds in their chest and all the blood drained from their bodies.

Since that date sightings of this, or similar creatures been logged in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, the United States, and Russia. Dozens of strange animal carcasses have been found that people believed to be Chupacabras, but all that have been examined have had more realistic explanations. But the most common events accredited to him are dead livestock with gaping holes and sucked dry of blood. Pretty creepy stuff.

The legend of his appearance varies, but he usually has lizard like skin, a alienish head, with big fangs, long claws and usually walks up right. Believe in him or not, El Chupacabra is here to stay.

See my favorite El Chupacabra video here.  Pure genius.
