The Chupacabra Vampire

Bats and vampire fish are some of the most commonly known vampire animals that are known to drain the blood out of other animals. But over a decade ago, researchers considered the fact that there might be another vampire animal out there that could not only be dangerous to animals, but to humans also. This animal is the Chupacabra vampire. The name of the Chupacabra means “goat sucker” and the first reports came out in Puerto Rico in 1995.

The appearance of the Chupacabra vampire is debatable. The Field Guide to Bigfoot, Yeti, and Other Mystery Primates Worldwide states that the Chupacabra is about four feet tall, and has spotted grey fine hair covering its entire body. The eyes of the Chupacabra are very round, protruding, and seem to travel up the head and out to the sides, much like the universal image of an alien. It also has a slit for a mouth and two small pinholes for nostrils. Spikes travel down the creature’s back and it’s arms and legs are both very skinny. With only three toes and three fingers that have long, dangling claws at the end, this version of the creature is certainly creepy enough.

The Vampire Book: The Encyclopedia of the Undead also has a description that’s somewhat similar but has small differences. This version of the Chupacabra also has large protruding eyes but they are red and glowing. And the spikes that run down the back of the Chupacabra are also included over the entire body in this version of the reported Chupacabra.

Chupacabra vampires hunt at night and are said to leave two small holes in the necks of their victims and drain them entirely of blood. They borne the name because initially, they seemed to only feed on goats. But as their appearances became more known they seemed to move on to dogs, cats, and goats. There has never been an instance when a Chupacabra vampire hurt a human but there is reports that a human has been threatened by these animals.

The question is whether or not the Chupacabra vampire really exists. Is there an animal that could be so dangerous to not only other animals but humans too? Or are these reported instances really just actual vampires that are very clever at disguising when they have claimed victory over their animal prey?
