  1. People who say they have seen the Chupacabra describe it as having very large alien-looking red eyes and fangs in an oval-shaped head. It stands 4.5 to 5.5 feet (137 to 168 centimeters) tall and usually moves on two legs, although it has been said to walk on all fours. Some describe it as having kangaroo-like hind legs, which allow it to jump. Most descriptions of the Chupacabra include long, feathery spines running down its back, starting at the skull and ending at the rump. Some eyewitnesses notice a sulfur sort of smell, but others say the creature has no discernable scent. Its skin has been described as being similar to that of a lizard.
