"Goat Sucker." El Chupacabra is a cryptid, a mysterious animal which allegedly inhabits parts of the Americas. The name refers to the animal's habit of drinking the blood of livestock, particularly goats. Reports of the animal date back to the early 1990s, in Puerto Rico. Physical descriptions of the Chupacabra vary widely.
From Spanish chupar, "to suck," and cabra, "goat."
