Chupacabra


I usually photograph squirrels, birds, insects, and domestic animals in my back yard on the Texas Gulf Coast. However the other day I spotted this fellow [I believe it’s a Chupacabra] perched on a tree limb and just managed to snap a picture before he scampered off. I know they are not native to the Houston area so I suspect he probably came up from Mexico following the great herds of migrating goats that typically winter in South Texas before heading South again in the spring.

out of all the mythical, blood sucking creatures out there, the Chupacabra is almost certainly the sneakiest
