The chupacabra is a mysterious, 4 foot tall, reptilian humanoid, with faintly glowing spines on its back. Its name means “goat sucker”, due to its vampiric feeding habits and a tendency to kill livestock.

The chupacabra is known for killing chickens, goats, and even cows, leaving them completely drained of blood, with fang marks on their necks. Despite the creature’s size, it is exceptionally deadly.

Anyone bitten by the chupacabra must make a saving throw versus turned to stone. If they fail, this means that the chupacabra has latched on to their neck and begins to drain their blood. Each round the chupacabra is latched to its victim, they take 1-4 damage, though every round they may make a saving throw versus turned to stone to escape.

Though the most common variety of chupacabra is that of a small reptilian humanoid with spikes on its back, occasionally there are specimens that resemble hairless wolves with a ridged back. Some specimens even have bat-like wings, granting them a flying speed of 240 feet/turn.
