Definitely easier if you speak Spanish...Chupa = sucks, Cabra = goat. It's name is literally goatsucker. :)

Should be "chupacabras." Compound words like this are pluralized in Spanish. Chupa = "(it) suck(s)" Cabras = "(female) goats."
+2
level 55
Apr 10, 2015
I could be mistaken, but I believe the Spanish word for goat is always "cabra", so putting the female part in there is kind of silly.
+1
level 59
Oct 30, 2019
It's both the generic and the feminine. There's a word for male goat which is "cabrón", though it is most often used as an insult meaning "bastard" than to refer to the actual animal ;)

The first two answers I tried for "sasquatch" were "yeti" and "abominable snowman". I think these are more appropriate answers and should be accepted.

Oct 30, 2019
That was my first answer but I quickly got the correct one on the second try. (I once walked into a room where my grandmother and mother were sitting and I assumed they had been talking about me because my grandmother said, "Speak of the devil and his imps will appear.")

Bats are the only mammals that can fly, but vampire bats have an even more interesting distinction—they are the only mammals that feed entirely on blood. (...) The common vampire bat is found in the tropics of Mexico, Central America, and South America. REF: http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/mammals/common-vampire-bat/

The Serpent and the Devil are the same being. And regardless, in its Serpent form it's not a bogeyman as it only appears in that one instance. Witches are not necessarily female.

I thought they just had to be scary. I don’t see any indication that they have to be fictional or irregular people. Anyway, it’s just a suggestion.

Actually sasquatch is the professional term for all non-Homo sapiens Homos, including Bigfoot. Bigfoot (also known as the Cascadian Sasquatch) is a popular term for the Cascadian Sasquatch, however in reality it refers directly to the sasquatch sighted in the Patterson Gimlin footage

Am I the only one here bothered by the fact that poor snakes are lumped in with a bunch of mythical monsters and bad guys? Poor snakes. They are just trying to live their lives and keep rodent populations down for us, next thing ya know, they are lumped in with Chupacabras.

(The word) demon was not referring to anything evil originally. It actually meant (guardian) spirit of deity. Ofcourse after christianity there could only be one god and other (lesser) deities were eventually presented in a bad daylight. At first demon still meant deity, not hellcreature but just heathen spirits/deities, but looked down upon/seen negatively. Later on it got, well demonized I guess and turned into evil beings.

Hope I explained it well enough in english. Hard to make descriptions in another language, especially in text. But if you didnt know this already, educate yourself and research it.
