In 1995, Puerto Rico was seized with mass hysteria over a new menace lurking in the rainforests, gruesomely killing livestock, leaving strange holes in their necks, and draining their bodies of blood. Described by eyewitnesses as a devilish creature three feet tall with spikes along its back and a mouth full of razor-sharp fangs, the strange animal was given the name Chupacabra--Spanish for "goat-sucker."

Join noted monster hunter Nick Redfern and his spirited crew as they traverse the rugged backcountry of Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Texas investigating the continuing legacy of this fearsome beast. Whether he's interviewing locals, analyzing physical evidence, or sorting out the facts from the legends, Nick's journey into the realm of the Chupacabra will make you wonder just what's out there lurking in the night.


"Gonzo-style investigator and author Nick Redfern again plunges into the mysterious thickets that shroud the world's unknown animals, this time surfacing with an eye-opening look at the much-feared, bloodsucking thing known as the Chupacabra. It's a breathless road trip . . . no adventurous spirit will want to miss."--Linda Godfrey, author of American Monstersand Real Wolfmen
