Chupacabra looks like a dog for us :D But this Chupacabra is cooler! (dinosaurs always look cooler)

Yes, my interpretation of the chupacabra is indeed based upon a dinosaur!
(For all, palaeontolgy nerds, I think of it as a distant descendant of the Noasauridae, whose fossils have been found in South America.)

I read a book series called Cryptid Hunters with my son about a brother and sister who stayed with their uncle and they had different adventures searching for cryptids. We had fun reading it so when I saw your comic, it made me think of that series and got me interested in reading what your version of a group of cryptid hunters was about. Anyway, I'm only bringing that up right now because the third book in the series was called Chupacabra. I'm looking forward to seeing how your chupacabra adventure plays out.

I guess it isn't really surprising that other people also figured out a similar cryptid-based premise like me.
I am aware of one other webcomic about cryptid hunting, though there the protagonists are teenagers instead of adults.
I also once heard about an animated TV show featuring cryptid hunters, though as far as I can tell, there too their take seems to be rather different.

Cryptids are a fascinating topic and when handled properly, they can provide great subject matter for all kinds of stories. The book series I was referring to is by Roland Smith and consisted of 4 books - Cryptid Hunters, Tentacles, Chupacabra, and Mutation.
