Question by : What does "chupacabra" mean is it English?

Please leave your comments!



  2. chupar "to suck" and cabra "goat", literally "goat sucker"

    It is from the Americas.

  3. No, Chupacabra is a Spanish word for a modern mythological beast accused of attacking livestock
    The English translation of the creature's name is “goat sucker.”

  4. It's comes from Spanish. It's some kind of mythical monster from central or south America that drinks the blood of livestock. Check Wikipedia for the full story:

  5. It's a Latin american word haha. It means "sucks goats" or "goat sucker" cuz it's a mythical devil-ish creature who is known to suck the blood out of goats and perhaps other farm animals. Really freaky looking thing =P

  6. It's a type of legendary animal, which purportedly sucks the blood out of animals.The literal translation is Goat Sucker, and it has two legs. This originated in Puerto Rico and then it spread to the Spanish speaking world. In fact animals were found with blood sucked out of them, and there have been sightings in various places. It is something on the order of UFO, sightings.A drawing of the " animal " can be found on Wiki.

    Hope this helps

  7. Like everyone else said, it more or less means "goat sucker".

    By the way, the actual way to say it is "el chupacabras" with an "s" on the end. The "s" is there because the name actually means "sucker of goatS" in Spanish. The final "s" is often taken off by English speakers (and people who don't speak Spanish very well) so that the name will appear to them to be in the singular - just lettin' ya know :)
