Latin America has been all abuzz over this creature for some time now. I never attached much to the story due to a lack of evidence, but if this report is correct, could a new species of coyote be the real culprit behind the stir? Is this evolution in action, or an animal that is common in small parts of the Americas, which is now growing in numerical size and expanding it's range into new parts of the regional  hemisphere? All simply due to a lack of, or the removal of a natural predator it once competed against.

Gadzooks! My secret identity has been compromised...repeat after me Panther: There is no such thing as a chupacabra. Now there might be some pervert out there that likes to suck goats but the world being what it is, to each his own. Now if you are near Roswell take care!

Really? I Didn't know that Doc. Well that is a twist i didn't expect. I had kind of figured the animal was perhaps native to the Americas, absent any of it's most recent competitors of course.

Psst, Panther it's "la" chupacabra...and, if we wish to be technical the animal in question is nothing other than the Xoloitzcuintle a simple canine (yes, it's a dog) commonly known as the Mexican Hairless or Xolo. Yes, it is a rare breed (and the fact that the "specimens" that are popping up in Texas show signs of neglect and a near-feral life style indicates a rather disturbing undercurrent) but the animal itself is is neither a blood sucker or indiscriminate killer. It comes in three sizes (toy, miniature, and standard) and does have a "coated" variety.  See:

Thanks Doc. We Americans needed that. The Xolo sure does look like a healthy version of the darned Chupa that get's pasted on the web. Good link too. :)

Indeed. Thanks for the info doc. I hadn't a clue about them. Now the hairless cat, that is a different matter. Who hasn't heard about them?
