El Chupacabra - Mangey Coyote or Cryptid-Creature?

El Chupacabra - Mangey Coyote or Cryptid-Creature?

Scotland has Nessie, The Himalayas have Yeti, West Virginia has Mothman...and Puerto Rico has El Chupacabra.

This week on Xander & Stone - The Science & Supernatural Podcast we take a look at the elusive and mysterious Chupacabra. 

From the Sigbin in the Philippines, a Goat-Sucker in China to reports up and down the America's - the Chupacabra has been kept alive in mind and imagination since the mid 90s.

Is it the result of secret government experiments gone wrong? An ET pet? An intentional hybrid breed? Or just a mangey grumpy coyote trying to catch an easy meal?

And what's this about a Fish Chupacabra?

Xander & Stone deliver their usual anecdotes and banter - covering everything from chickens on skateboards, to spiders that chase you and what Xander's name would be if he was a cryptid (hint: it's a bit like Bigfoot).
