My favourite monster is the Chupacabra. Once translated the name means goat-sucker. They call it that because it empties the blood of livestock through their throat. I wonder why it chooses to eat livestock instead of people. Fear makes blood taste good.
My second favourite monster is the New Delhi Monkey Man. The monkey man terrorized India during a 2001 power outage. He wore a little WWI helmet and had claws made of metal.
