Bigfoot has been sighted throughout the United States, from the 16th Century to present. The first reported sightings were by Native Americans. He was called numerous names by different Indian tribes, 'sasquatch' was only one of over 50 different Indian names given to the creature. This creature looks more like a hairy man than an ape or monkey. It is mostly reported as being between 6 - 8 feet tall, but has been sighted with a smaller female and even offspring, as small as human children. The larger, adult male of the species is rugged, and built very muscular. It's shoulders are wide, and it has very little neck area. It has short brown to black hair covering it's body, with longer hair on the head. Most reports have the creatures eyes glowing or shining red in the dark when reflected by a flashlight or some other light source.
Most folks report no odor when they have encountered bigfoot, but the others that do, have started showing a pattern of a strange anomaly, the creature can project or discharge a scent, at will, not like a skunk, by spraying, but by some other means. People have reported one smell, then suddenly it changes into an entirely different odor. Odors have been described as: rotten flesh, poop, old vomit, out-houses, rotted fish, rotten eggs, or foul and just sickening. Bigfoot seems to make Ape-like grunts and growls, to almost a scream like sound, and others have heard whistles and strange calls.
Indians almost all believe Bigfoot is a Non-Physical creature. Some Indian tribes mention that they have seen the creature transform into a wolf. Others think that these creatures live in another dimension from the physical plane, but can come here as they desire. Indians also believe Bigfoot has great psychic abilities, reports of sightings show the creature can be visible to some people, while at the same time remain invisible to others in the same group. There are many reports from non-Indians who saw the creature after a UFO sighting. And others that have searched for, and researched bigfoot for years are coming to the conclusion that the creature is a spiritual being, because he can appear or disappear at will.
Great Lakes Indians mention that if one is walking in the woods and you hear the sound of a stick being hit against a hollow log or tree, beware, for this area is Sasquatch territory. This seems to be a interesting thing to note, because other non-Indians have even reported this. People have reported that sometimes the stick hitting is loud or thud like, like a large log is being hit against a tree, while at othertimes it is more like a small stick is being used. Some Bigfoot researchers have reported sightings right after hearing these strange sounds. Besides, the stick hitting, another well documented fact many Bigfoot researchers report is rock throwing. Researchers have had stones thrown at them, and at their vehicles, and there have also been reports from people living in Bigfoot hot spots, of having stones thrown on their roofs and against their homes and cabins.
The creatures episodes of hitting sticks and rock throwing may be the best evidence we have to show that they are spirtual beings. If you research paranormal cases involving 'poltergeist' incidents, you will soon realize that many of the cases involve the throwing or dropping of stones against houses, and on the roofs of the homes where the poltergeist attacks are occurring. In many of the poltergeist cases, the stones being dropped and thrown were the beginning of the infestation, or encounter, just like in the bigfoot cases.
When it comes to the sticks being hit against logs or trees we have yet another connection to the spiritual world. When I was very young, I remember reading an advertisement in the back of a magazine. The ad was titled something like this: 'Talk to the Spirits with amazing JuJu Sticks'. The JuJu sticks were cut from some sacred wood and were blessed by a voodoo practitioner. The sticks were hit against a table or some other wooden item, and one could supposedly here tappings or other communication back, from the spirit world.

The Chupacabra is one of the most recent creatures of cryptozoology, first seen during the early 1990s in Puerto Rico. El Chupacabra, Chupacabras or Goat Sucker is a creature native to the Americas, particularly the island where it was first reported, Mexico, and the United States, although this being has been reported in other Latin American communities.
Goat sucker is the literal translation to the Spanish word Chupacabra, the name given to the creature after being reported as a winged being, with the habit of attacking and drinking the blood of goats and livestock. Like occurs with other cryptids, the Chupacabra is described in different way after the sightings in Puerto Rico. From the North Carolinas in the United States to the south of Chile bordering with Argentina, the Chupacabra was a lonely single creature flying from one location to another, until the reports of attacks revealed that there is more than one creature in the area.
Once again, the scientists consider the Chupacabra a legendary creature, born from modern urban legends, but nobody can explain how and who attacked animals in the way the Chupacabra is described to attack. In early 1992, the first reports were considered human acts of Satanism or a similar cult. Later, it was said that a sort of primitive vampire was responsible for the killings of many different types of goats, and other animals, including birds, dogs, cows and horses. All dead animals were found with one pattern in common, they all had two puncture holes on their necks and they were totally drained of blood.
Mass hysteria began when the lack of blood was accompanied by mutilations and the reports outside Puerto Rico were more frequent. Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Panama, Peru, Brazil, Dominican Republic, and the United States were the preferred target of the Chupacabra before making Mexico its second home. After being considered a vampire or "macho cabrio", the Chupacabra was considered a type of Alien until the continuous sightings gave it specific forms of appearance. The Chupacabra is supposed to be a wallaby-like being, a strange breed of wild dog, or the most common, a lizard-like creature with greenish-gray skin and sharp spines running down its back.
In 2001 a Chupacabra's corpse was found in Nicaragua supporting the conclusion that it is simply a strange breed of wild dog, but in recent years the tracks of a winged-like being were found in Mexico. This finding shows a creature as it was originally described in the 1990s, but without the corpse, this proof makes no evidence for scientists.
