Deep in the back woods of South Texas you never know what might be lurking around the corner or in your tree.

In a small town near San Antonio, one family is certain they've found the mythical, despicable chupacabra and this time it's alive.

With its hairless back large claws countless teeth and ferocious growl many would say this animal fits the bill.

However, biologists with Texas Parks and Wildlife, say the canine can include a coyote, dog, or even a fox and is most likely has mange which has caused it to lose its hair.

Chupacabra or not, right now this little guy is staying at the family's home that found him, living off a diet of cat food and corn, at least until someone can find out what it really is.
