El Chupacabra

The El Chupacabra literally means "goat-sucker" in Spanish, and that's just what this cryptozoological creature does, draining a variety of livestock of its blood, especially goats. Descriptions do vary, some reporting it as a lizard like human with rows of spikes across its head and spine, and others insisting it's a bear like creature with an enormous spiked tail. Although its first sightings were in Puerto-Rico, El Chupacabra is said to have been spotted everywhere from Russia to the Phillipines and, of course the United States.
