Ever seen this Chupacabra?

Chupacabra - Chupacabra from Mexico, standing on a table, with a clamp on its arm to stand up for the photo.

I have this photo here of the Chupacabra that was captured in Mexico, I think. What do you guys think of this, and have you seen it before anywhere else? They say this is real, and it was found dead.

It looks very much like a monkey embryo or perhaps a skinned monkey or some similar animal. I don't believe that anything like that exists alive. The photo is very obviously posed as if it were caught in a trap. I have no idea what a chupacabra is (the word means 'goatsucker') but I assume that it is a mythical being, like a goblin, boggart or some such. The descriptions I have found of it describe it as 'the size of a small bear' and 'having spines down its back'. Based on that, I would say that this is not a picture of a chupacabra. Everything about the animal in the picture suggests that it is either a newborn or embryo which has not yet developed hair or an animal which has been skinned. You can, at least, bet your bottom dollar that it is a hoax.

it is not necessarily a mythical being in the U.S., but it may be in Mexico. wait, how could it be the size of a small bear, and be something that hasn't developed yet? i guess it could be a small unborn animal that was the baby of something large, but you can't really tell, it doesn't look like anything ever seen before like an embryo as far as that goes.

It does look very like a baby monkey or tarsier to me. People keep all kinds of animals as pets.

Real or fake, the caption is odd: it says it is on a table with its hand in a clamp; but that doesn't look like any table, and the "clamp" is obviously a rabbit trap or similar.

I doubt very much that it's real, just looks really fake to me. It is very creepy though. I've seen film of supposed chupacabra that are all really creepy, and maybe something like it does exist but so many of these things turn out to be fake it's hard to know.
