Of the many and varied strange creatures that fall into the domain of Cryptozoology, there are few more infamous than the Chupacabra of Puerto Rico. The phenomenon began in 1995, specifically in August of that year. That was when a woman named Madelyne Tolentino reported seeing a truly bizarre-looking beast roaming around Canovanas, which is located in the northeast portion of Puerto Rico. Terrified by the encounter, Tolentino said that the monster briefly in her midst was approximately three feet tall, had large and dark eyes, and a row of, well, something, running down its head and back. And, it ran in an odd, hopping style – not unlike that of a kangaroo. In the immediate days afterwards, further sightings of the beast were made – and in other parts of the island too: whatever the creature was, it was definitely now on the move. Others confirmed seeing the odd protrusions on the head and back of the beast: it was a row of sharp, imposing spikes. One witness who got a little too close to the creature, also in Canovanas, was treated to the creature’s huge, dangerous-looking fangs.
