The El chupacabra also called El Vampiro de Moca, (from Spanish chupar: to suck, cabra: goat; goats sucker)is a creature said to inhabit parts of the Americas. It is associated New Orleans it is known as a Grunch or Black Grunch. Puerto Rico (where it was first reported as a Chupacabra), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter's Latin American communities. "Goat-Sucker" comes from the creature's reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock.

Physical descriptions of the creature vary. Grunch Sightings began in New Orleans in the late 1960's and Chupacabra, Puerto Rico in the early 1990s, and have since been reported as far north as the Carolinas, and as far south as Chile. The Chupacabra, as it is known now, was called 'El Vampiro de Moca' {in Puerto Rico}, some years ago.

The Name Grunch came from the name of a Road in the eastern part of New Orleans circa late 1950's to present day. Where many numerous stories of blood sucked chickens, goats, cows and occasional persons were said to have encountered them eye to red eye. Many say the legend of the Grunch dates back to the early settlement days of New Orleans.

The audio in the video below is translated as:
"Some young investigators encountered something that gave them a bad feeling in there stomach on the outskirts of Mexico City"

Though some argue that the chupacabras may be real creatures, mainstream scientists and experts generally contend that the chupacabra and grunch are a legendary creature, or a type of urban legend. At the height of the chupacabra craze, there were many "Goatsucker Home Pages" on the Internet. The web site of radio host Art Bell, Coast To Coast AM posted an alleged photograph of a living chupacabra, depicting a creature later exposed as a statue from a museum exhibit.

Chupacabra Description
There are several variations of what people believe the Chupacabra to look like. The current theory is that it is a bipedal creature around four to five feet tall described as a sort of a cross between a 'Grey' alien humanoid, mainly because the shape of its head and eyes, and what most witnesses describe as the body of a bipedal, erect dinosaur. It has two small arms with a three-fingered clawed hand, two strong hind almost reptilian legs, again with three claws and spinal quills down its back, which it uses to fly. This appears to enable it to run quickly and leap over trees. Its head is oval in shape and has an elongated jaw. Two red or black beady eyes have been reported, together with small holes in the nostril area, a small slit-like mouth with fang-type teeth protruding upwards and downwards from the jaw. It appears to have strong course hair all over its body; and whilst most observers claim the hair is black, it has the remarkable ability to change colours at will, almost like a chameleon. In the dark, it will change to black or a deep brown color; in a sunlit area surrounded by vegetation, it changes to green, green-grey, light brown or beige. Some believes it to be a half-man, half-beast vampire, while still others say it is similar to a panther with red eyes and the tongue of a snake. Another version is that it hops like a kangaroo and smells like sulfur.

The chupacabra is generally treated as a product of mass hysteria, though the animal mutilations are sometimes real. Like many cases of such mutilations, however, it has been argued that they are often not as mysterious as they might first appear, and in fact, in a series of tests showcased by the National Geographic Channel in a show about the chupacabra, pointed to the obvious conclusion that every single "animal mutilation" can be explained by either people killing them or, more likely, other animals eating them. The lack of blood is explained by insects drinking it.

--Santiago Times

In an encounter that occurred in Arizona, the creature entered a house through an open door, then mumbled and gestured to the home owner, before fleeing. A couple hours later the man heard his son screaming, as he entered his son's bedroom, the creature was standing on his son's chest. The creature exited the bedroom through an open door and flew out a window. In this encounter the police were called by the '911' dispatcher. -- http://www.unknown-creatures.com/chupacabra.html

The chupacabra is a cryptid said to inhabit parts of the Americas. It is associated particularly with Puerto Rico (where it was first reported), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter's Latin American communities. The name translates literally from the Spanish as "goat sucker". It comes from the creature's reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats. Physical descriptions of the creature vary. Sightings began in Puerto Rico in the early 1990s, and have since been reported as far north as Maine, and as far south as Chile. Though some argue that the chupacabras may be real creatures, mainstream scientists and experts generally contend that the chupacabra is a legendary creature, or a type of urban legend. It is supposedly a heavy creature, about the size of a small bear with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail.

Chupacabras have been described as similar in appearance to gargoyles, so it has been theorized that the creatures were seen in Medieval Europe, and possibly taken to South America on board Spanish galleons. According to this theory, gargoyles were carved to resemble chupacabras, to keep the public (and sometimes believed to keep evil spirits) afraid of any place with gargoyles.


Some cryptozoologists speculate that chupacabras are alien creatures. Chupacabras are widely described as otherworldly, and, according to one witness report, NASA may be involved with this particular alien's residency on earth. The witness reported that NASA passed through an area in Latin America, with a trailer that was thought to contain an incarcerated creature.[citation needed] There have also been UFOs seen where chupacabras have been at the same time on occasion. Others speculate that the creature is an escaped pet of alien visitors that wandered off while its master was visiting Earth. The Chupacabra does have a slight resemblance to the Greys, which could mean that they are somehow related.


Some people in the island of Puerto Rico believe that the chupacabras were a genetic experiment from some United States' government agency, which escaped from a secret laboratory in El Yunque, a mountain in the east part of the island when the laboratory was damaged during a severe storm in the early 1990s. The US military have had a large presence across Puerto Rico since the 1930s, with bases on the island used as Research and Development facilities (amongst other things) up to the present day. The lethal agent orange chemicals were tested by the US on the crops of Puerto Rico in widespread crop-spraying operations, all performed without notifying local people or farmers, and the efficacy and safety of contraceptive medicines was also secretly tested on islanders who had no knowledge of their 'guinea pig' status at all. ("UFO's Strangest Mysteries", Discovery Science) This may explain some of this alleged paranoia.

Another possibility would involve giant vampire bats of which a few fossils have been found in South-America.

Most believe that the Chupacabra is most likely to be a close relative of the Aye-aye, a primate that is Madagascar's equivalent to the racoon in appearance and woodpecker ecologically. Like the vampire bat, the Chupacabra evolved to feed on the blood of other animals.

Cryptozoology is the search for animals that are rumored to exist, but for which conclusive proof is missing. This includes the search for living examples of animals that are known to have existed at one time, but are widely considered to be extinct today. Those who study or search for such animals are called crypto zoologists, while the hypothetical creatures involved are referred to by some as "cryptids", a term coined by John Wall in 1983.

Cryptids are legendary creatures that are rumored or suspected to exist, but for which conclusive proof is still missing. Cryptids also include Unidentified Mysterious Animals (UMA) and species that are hard to classify. Some are extinct animals that might just still be alive. The most notable Cryotids still make international news now and then, from the el Chupacabra to the Loch Ness monster. Their stories and sightings still have a dramatic effect on the public.
