Chupacabra Caught on Tape?

unless mange and disease causes the canine teeth to take an abnormal form to most dogs... then that's no coyote or dog. Look at it's canines... there far more curvy

Well, let's take a look, shall we?


The supposed "chupacabra" is seen on the left, and a coyote skull on the right.

Looks like a near-perfect match to me
 
These are just coyotes with mange

That's correct. Seriously, how many times do we have to see someone take a picture of these poor creatures and claim it's a Chupacabra. It's disproved every time.

Not really, they look normal to me. Keep in mind that with mange the gums recede making the canines look longer than they really are and show more of the natural "curve" of the canines. Some more curvy than others. Do an image search on google for "Coyote Skulls" and take a look.

I didn't hear anything about a DNA test on the carcass...I assume they are not going to allow that to happen? How convenient.

Edit: Damn, Battousai beat me too it...and with pictures and everything.
 
ahh.... *feels stupid* didnt know coyotes had elongated teeth. that ones just looks thinner and sharper to me for some reason.. but not enough difference
 
Do these morons who keep claiming these coyotes with mange are Chupacabra even have a clue what the Chupacabra is supposed to look like? Because it doesn't look anything like a dog.
 
Maybe I won't be the first person to say this, but I want to agree.... FAAAAKE.

Rat-thing would be a better name for these mange coyotes. :oldrazz:
 
Maybe you should. There's a much clearer second clip after the blurry one.

I watched it. It was severely unimpressive.

Looking at it for only a few moments allows one to notice that it not only has too large a torso and too short a tail, but also has no noticeable vertical striping on the hindquarters.

This is not a tasmanian tiger.

Coincidentally that is my all time favorite episode of DS9.
 
If the Deputies saw it and filmed it for credibility...Why didn't they just...UMMMM...
I don't know SHOOT IT!!!!!!!!

Still, it is an impressive animal - in the video that is.
 
Aren't Tasmanian Tigers extinct? They're one of the last major animals to go extinct, I think it died out in the '20s or '30s.

The last known specimen died in 1936. It was considered an endangered species until 1986. Because no living specimens had been documented for 50 years, its conservation status was changed to extinct.
 
Scientists have been talking about cloning the Tasmanian tiger and releasing them back out into the wild.
 
How would they clone it? Unless they have some tissue of it still, that's impossible.
 
They have skeletons of them.
 
Correction they have a baby one in a jar.


That's a set of six there ^ I didn't feel like putting the others here.

There's also an episode of Monster Quest talking about the same thing, but you'll have to download it if you want to see it because I can't find it anywhere else.

at least I'm pretty sure that search came out right ^
 
Oh, cool. I didn't know that. It'd be very interesting to see that happen, as long they don't go crazy with the cloning & starting cloning s*** like dinosaurs & wooly mammoths or sabertooth tigers.
 
Knowing genetics, cloning the animal would be a poor choice of method. The population would die out quickly from the problems of inbreeding.

considering MANY MANY MANY MANY animals in the wild inbreed... i don't think thats that big of a deal as you'd think

I don't think you know what I mean when I say "inbreed". I don't mean it in the sense of dog breeds or cat breeds (although particularly pure breeds are known to have more genetic and health problems than mixes/mutts), but rather in terms of direct lineage and generation. More along the lines of incest, for example.

Considering their genes would be pretty much identical, yes - it would be quite problematic.
