What Is This Animal?

Some seem to think it's the ellusive chupacabra....

I don't know, but I wouldn't want him to sink those teeth into my big behind!

How far is that town from Nye County Nevada, the home of the NTS?
928 nuclear explosions may have created some awfully weird stuff!

Poor Chupacabra. It looks kind of sad, all curled up, slimy and fangy. I agree with the radiation theory. This creature was probably a run-of-the-mill dog at one time.

I really don't understand all the hoopla over this animal. cannot a scientist look at its genetic makeup and make a determination of what it is?

It just looks like a dog or coyote with some kindof skin disorder.

You need to be leery of hairless critters!

I thought the chupacabra was supposed walk around on 2 legs? Pretty freaky looking either way.

Your treading on thin ice, first the big butt-ice cream crack and now this.....I hope she doesn't go on the Forum, otherwise you're likely to be sleeping in the Big Green Egg tonight.

Thats what it is. They get this disease and lose all their hair and die. They look nasty. They probably need to die after that.
