Chupacabra - The first reported sightings of
this cryptid, came out of Puerto Rico, then
spread into South American countries, and now
up into the Southwest United States. The name
Chupacabra, literally translates to Goat
Sucker. Reports of this creature usually involve
small farm animals, which are found dead with
the blood drained from their bodies. Originally,
the Chupacabras were generally described as
bi-pedal, with a type of reptilian look and
spines down it's back. Over the past several
years, there has been reported sightings, video
and even captured Chupacabras, in Texas. While these captured creatures did not have the classic Chupacabra reported look, they are more canine-like, with exceptionally long fangs, long snouts, out of proportion back to front legs, hairless, with very rough, elephant-like skin. Also referred to as the Texas Blue Dog. While these animals have yet to be 100% identifiable, there is no evidence that they are the Chupacabra.
Bigfoot - At the epicenter of the Cryptozoology
spectrum, is Bigfoot. Also know as Sasquatch,
Skunk Ape, etc., depending on the geographical
area. The lore of this man/ape has been around
for centuries. Although there has been countless
sightings, plaster casts of supposed footprints
of this creature, and some photos and videos, no
conclusive evidence has ever been confirmed.
Possibly, the closest thing to hard evidence of
this creature, is the Paterson/Gimlin film from
1967, in Bluff Creek, CA. The film is 23 feet long,
with 954 frames. It is said, that the only other piece of film that has been analyzed more, is the Zupruder film of the Kennedy assassination.

Cryptozoology is a pseudoscience involving the search for creatures whose existence has not yet been proven, due to lack of mainstream scientific evidence. The creatures that cryptozoologists study, are often referred to as cryptids.
