chupacabras

A chupacabras is an legendary beast/mammal. It's name is derived from the words chupar ("to suck") and cabra ("goat"), which comes from the alleged habit of attacking livestock and sucking their blood, especially with goats.

The chupacabras has been reportedly spotted in various areas of the Americas, including Maine in the US, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Chile. It is supposedly the size of a small bear, with horns or spines aligned from it's neck to tail.
