The name Chupacabra means goat-sucker. Which is supposedly just what it does. Its victims (usually
goats, or other animals of the same size) are found completely drained of blood, with small puncture
marks on their body. Some of the many theories about the what the chupacabra might be are: An
udiscovered animal(actual cryptid), an alien, the pet of an alien left on earth by mistake, mistaken identity,
or hoaxes, a cloning experiment, some government project which they are always trying to cover up, or
a theory by Clyde Lewis is that they are an animal thought to be extinct. Namely, the Thrinaxodon
or a relative of it.
The average chupacabra is around 3 feet tall, and about the size of a goat. It walks on its hind legs
and has 2 smaller forearms with claws. The chupacabra also has large fangs, spikes or spines coming
out of its back, large red eyes, and a tail.
It is sometimes reported to be hopping. Its skin is said to be grayish or "dinosaur" like.

Strange animal killed in Nicaragua. Thought to be chupacabra. Skeleton brought to
Department of Biology of the UNAN (National University of Nicaragua) at Leon.
University claims it is a dog. Locals scepticle though.
I believe that the chupacabra is a mixture of both mistaken identity, and some, as yet, undiscovered animal.
I think that there is an animal out there that people are seeing, and it has not been formally "discovered.
And, also they are seeing other animals but are thinking chupacabra and reading too much into the sighting.
