This unique stuffed animal represents the mysterious Chupacabra, an enigmatic creature that has been sighted extensively throughout Latin America and United States. “Chupacabra” means “goatsucker” in Spanish and some people believe that it is associated with unexplained attacks on farm animals and pets.
The Chupacabra has large fangs on its upper jaw. Its upper limbs are small and have three big claws. It reportedly uses its powerful hind legs to leap long distances. Small winglike membranes under its arms help it glide through the air towards its victims. Its fur is short and brown and helps it blend in with its surroundings. Its large eyes and long thin tongue are bright red. Most sightings report that the Chupacabra has long greenish spines or quills that run from the back of its head all the way down to its short stubby tail.
Some people believe the Chupacabra arrived on Earth as an alien’s pet. Others suggest that it is the result of a genetic engineering experiment that went wrong. It first appeared in the mountains of Puerto Rico, but has also been seen in Mexico, Nicaragua, Chile and other countries. It is thought to live in underground burrows or caves.
Nobody has ever captured a Chupacabra.
The Chupacabra is factory new with tags and measures 11 inches tall when in the sitting position and 16 inches long when laying down. The Chupacabra is recommended for children ages 6 and up.
