The different characteristics of this animal lead most people to be suspicious about the existence of chupacabras. Other than the appearance of the chupacabra, many people identify the creature by the aftermaths of its attack. Although appearances of Chupacabras vary widely, all stories explain that this creature kills by puncture wounds on the prey’s neck (Luntta, 2006).

The first, is that most ancestral cats occupied tropical forests where the environmental factors made it difficult to preserve fossils. The second was that the physical characteristics of these large cats were similar to the capture of prey making it difficult to distinguish a felines structure. Because these cats are so difficult to distinguish due to their similarities, there have been many debates about different species of cats, who their ancestors are and where they originated from.

While this may seem threatening, no tarantula has strong enough venom to kill a human with most spices bites being no worse than a bee sting. Even if it were to bite it'd be 9/10 times a “dry bite” which is a bite with no venom injected.

Other invasive species may not destroy the habitat, but it can have an impact by killing large numbers of other species. Burmese pythons, for example, are top predators in the Everglades. As such, they have local mammal and bird populations. They are capable of consuming deer and even alligators, these creatures eat virtually any animal they encounter in the Everglades. A number of threatened and endangered bird species have also been found in the digestive tracts of pythons, prompting concern that they could drive some species toward extinction Lampreys in the Great Lake parasitize native fish.
