Does Chupacubra really exist? Scientists say "No way", but people keep reporting sightings now and then. Recently in west Texas, people suspected possible Chupacubra attack after they found about thirty dead chickens without a single drop of blood. They found two bite marks that made them suspect it could be the work of Chupacubra as shown in these Chupacubra pictures. Look at these chubracubra images and decide for yourself. The first reports of chupacubra sightings were made as early as 1995 in Puerto Rico. Some say, in 2006, they were spotted in Russia. Biologist say all of the 'chupacabras' were simply coyotes infected with a parasite, which yielded most of the features like little fur on body of chupacubra, thickened skin, and rank odor.
Chupacubra is part reptile, part coyote and is an ugly creature. The name chupacabra means "goat sucker," because the creature likes to suck the blood out of its prey. Sometimes big racoons are mistaken for Chupacubras. A small, hairless animal was found dead in Jan 2010 by a maintenance worker at Runaway Bay Golf Course. How the racoon lost all its hair remains a mystery.
A state biologist compared the shape of the animal’s head to that of a bleached raccoon skull, and they matched. The animal’s "dental formula" was also similar to that of a racoon. In 2004, the hairless, doglike "Elmendorf Beast" was spotted near San Antonio, soon followed by two more sightings in the same area. Tests performed on some of the carcasses indicated that the animals were coyotes infected with sarcoptic mange, a scabby skin malady that can rid an animal of its hair. The raccoon might have fallen into nearby Lake Bridgeport during freezing weather and died.
The chupacabra is a "mythical" animal that preys on goats and other livestock in the dark of night. With unexplained chupacabra sightings becoming less and less rare, the four-legged creature now believed to be a raccoon was found on a golf course. Chupacabra Pictures show how ugly they are and some people believe they do really exist while biologists don't. Do you really think Chupacubra exist?
