The Chupacabra was a part lizard, part homunculus, blood-sucking magical beast native to the Americas.

History

Gellert Grindelwald had a pet Chupacabra named Antonio until he hurled it out of the door of an Incarceration Carriage.[1]

Description

The Chupacabra had six legs, multiple spines, and several sharp teeth.[2] It had blue markings with red rings on its body.

Behind the scenes

  • The Chupacabra is a mythological creature said to live in North America and Puerto Rico. Its name comes from the Spanish and Portuguese words for "goat sucker", as it is said to obtain nourishment from sucking the blood of goats and other livestock. Depending on the locality of the sighting, the appearance of the Chupacabra varies drastically. For example, in Puerto Rico, the Chupacabra is said to be a bipedal, reptilian humanoid, while in much of North America, it is said to look more like a hairless dog or coyote.
