The Chupacabra is a cryptid. Although some descriptions of a Chupacabra appear as a green alien humanoid with sharp teeth, the Chupacabra encountered in Cryptids Island resembled the Puerto Rican depiction, because this particular Chupacabra was found in Puerto Rico.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

In 1995, several Puerto Rican farmers were faced with a strange puzzle. The goats and chickens on their farms had died mysteriously during the night. The animals had two punch holes in them, almost like marks from a vampire's fangs. Was a coyote to blame? An escaped panther? Wild dogs? The villagers didn't think so. They were sure that the creature that attacked their animals was a chupacabra, Spanish for goat sucker. Although the first chupacabra sighting was reported in 1950, after the 1995 sightings chupacabra feeders swept the world. As reports came in, people started sketching what they thought the beast looked like, about 5 feet tall with a large mouthful of sharp teeth and fangs. It had large red alien-like eyes, stood on two legs and had very sharp claws. Some people have taken photos of what they believe is a dead chupacabra. But scientists have proven that those photos show coyotes with a disease called mange. Does this prove that the chupacabra doesn't exist? Nobody has yet explained how all those goats and chickens died. And those who have seen the chupacabra say they'll never forget the monster with the glowing eyes.

The Puerto Rico Chupacabra appears as a large, teal-blue, hairless American bulldog-wolf hybrid with bony spikes all over its body and gigantic claws and teeth.

Storyline[edit | edit source]

Head to Puerto Rico. Here, you'll find the same hot-air balloon man you helped earlier. Head all the way to the right until you see him standing with the farmer. Talk to the farmer and he will agree to lend you his jeep.

Now you have to drive to all the stars except the one somewhere in the middle, which will be visited later on. You will crash through some fences and maybe scare away some goats, but these do not matter. The farmers of the other farms tell you these important clues: The chupacabra attacks goats in groups of three or more, it only goes after spotted goats and seems to hang around Snaggletooth Rock.

The farm on the top left hand corner has a pair of wire clippers which are needed later. They are located on the right, on top of a rock face. Use the springy sticks to jump up and take them. The farm in the top right hand corner, a chicken farm, is where the farmer's brother is. He takes the seed, and says that the chupacabra attacked the farm. On the barbed wire fence, take the fur.

When you go back to Mews, he asks you to take a DNA sample. Follow the instructions on the screen EXACTLY IN ORDER AND IN THE RIGHT PLACES. Carry the chemicals slowly as they might spill if you move them too fast.

After the analysis, Mews confirms the fur is fake and that it is coyote fur.

When you go back to Puerto Rico, the farmer will decide to trap the chupacabra. Use the jeep to corral three spotted goats into the jaw-like part of Snaggletooth Rock. Do it slowly; there is no need to single out the spotted goats, just herd all of them.

Next, park your jeep at Snaggletooth Rock. Hide behind the rocks that the farmer hides behind, and the chupacabra will appear! The trap doesn't hold it for long, and it escapes, but leaves behind one of its teeth. Mews confirms the existence of the chupacabra. Also, the tooth can be reclaimed in the exact same spot.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • One of the pictures of the Chupacabra in the Mews mansion is an allusion of the 2009 Texas Chupacabra sighting.
  • Although the video in the Mews mansion claims that the Chupacabra has glowing red eyes the one you encounter has yellow eyes.
