One of the debated creatures not previously covered in the Cryptozoological presentations is the Chupacabra.
The illustration is a Friendship Card from the shop of FullFrogMoon at Etsy.The shop announcement says "In recent weeks, I have been hard at work creating artwork for a number of new product types like magnets and stick puppets. For the immediate future, I plan to continue with my eclectic mix of fantasy and political art, featuring public figures that are both respected or reviled in the public eye. I enjoy creating illustrations of politicians and celebrities interacting with ghosts and monsters, especially creatures from cryptozoology, like Bigfoot, Yeti and the Chupacabra.
Most of my artwork can be made into different products like posters, ornaments or magnets, so please send me a convo(method of sending a message within Etsy ie conversations) message if you would like something in a different medium.The work is outstanding.If you want a peek visit http://FullFrogMoon.etsy.com
Still love the site at http://www.cryptomungo.com in general but thought you might like to have the point of view from skeptics so...
"The chupacabra ("goat sucker") is an animal said to be unknown to science and systemically killing animals in places like Puerto Rico, Miami, Nicaragua, Chile, and Mexico. The creature's name originated with the discovery of some dead goats in Puerto Rico with puncture wounds in their necks and their blood allegedly drained. According to UFO Magazine (March/April 1996) there have been more than 2,000 reported cases of animal mutilations in Puerto Rico attributed to the chupacabra.
Like other creatures in the cryptozoologist's barnyard, the chupacabra has been variously described. Some witnesses have seen a small half-alien, half-dinosaur tailless vampire with quills running down its back; others have seen a panther like creature with a long snake-like tongue; still others have seen a hopping animal that leaves a trail of sulfuric stench. Some think it may be a type of dinosaur heretofore unknown. Some are convinced that the wounds on animals whose deaths have been attributed to the chupacabra indicate an alien presence. However, they do not attribute the "mutilations" to the aliens themselves, but to one of their pets or experiments gone awry. Such creatures are known as Anomalous Biological Entities [ABEs] in UFO circles."
There are of course some videos on You Tube..Do You Believe?
