Ray, me lad,

It was a celocant and thought to have been extimcet 60+ million years. (Name phonetically correct but spelling higly dubious.)

And, ariel, dear sprite, Colonel Sanders is a phenomena of the deep south Kentucky, Tennesse, Georgia, all the places white linen suits were in fasion. Here in Texas if it once moved we bar-b-que it.

No Ray,

It seems a particular affliction here. Even the female of the species seem to be affected by it but I do not wish to be construed as being against that.

Actually, it is rather nice where I live - sub-tropical, good water limestone hills with up to 1000 ft relief. further west you get into the Sonroan Desert with the Great Plains to th north and that is the area most think of as Texas. What most people, even Texans do not realize, is that the state is BIG. It is 10.5 degrees of latitude from north to south (700 miles) and 12+ degress of longitude wide (970 miles). North texas is like Kansas, south Texas like Mexico, west Texas like Arizona and east Texas like the swamp and timberland of Louisiana. If you are Schitsoid, it is the place to be.

Jim

I stay polite, say excuse me, and never, never flip anyone the bird. They DO shoot here! [xx(]

If I only had a little humility, I'd be perfect.

I believe the word is "coelacanth".

There was an article in the Arizona Daily Star (www.azstarnet.com) recently about sightings, showing photographs, and I believe reporting actual carcasses of the chupacabra recently discovered, but I was not able to locate the information on the web site. Perhaps the article appeared more than one week ago.

Hello, I'm new at this forum. I'm from Puerto Rico and I have to say a few things. First, according a  book belongs to my father published in 1923, the word goatsucker were used to refer to an animal that kill cows and goats in New Mexico. The animal is unknown and the attacks were reported before 1923.

In Puerto Rico, attacks were reported since 1971 and maybe before in a town name Moca.

Similar attacks were repoted in all Central america, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Costa Rica and South America in Colombia and Venezuela. There are also reports from Dominican Republic, New Mejico, Texas, and other states of the US.

Many people think that this is an urban legend but I know persons who had animals that were attacked and killed by this animal or whatever it is. Those attacks have no regularity, and there is no special time in the year, can occur whatever and whenever, but usually in countryside areas, not in cities or crowd places.

As a matter of fact, for many many people this a joke but certainly the animals attacked by the chupacabras have no blood in the body and present only two or three round holes in any part of the body near a big vein or artery. The holes are perfectly round and seems to be burned in the edge.

Another curiosity is that in the places where the victims are found, no sign of violence or defense of the victim is shown. No spreading blood at all or mess. No other open wounds or scratches. In the town of Barceloneta in Puerto Rico an attack reported showed more than 30 hens killed, and many of them were still in branches of the tree where they were sleeping.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chupacabra

"Biologists and wildlife management officials view the chupacabras as a contemporary legend.

In July 2010, a chupacabra-like creature was reported killed, but found to be a coyote with a severe parasite infection. In October of that year, University of Michigan scientists theorised that parasite-riddled coyotoes (specifically the parasites responsible for scabies and mange) were likely the basis for the chupacabra legend."
