I can't find any reference to it except in conjunction with Takeshi Yamada's sideshow. That makes me suspicious.

Remember also that snails are pseudopodia. Those podia look anything but pseudo.

Wow that looks very odd!
I have never seen anything like that before and have no Idea about its validity...

 at first glance it reminded me of a turtle foot but then I looked closer... very odd indeed!

the chupacabra is a 'legendary' animal from Mexico and south America. Legendary as in Bigfoot and Yeti's.
