To All: Are we on the cutting edge of
discovering a new hybrid or sub-species?
Case and Point: The Cryptid
is ALMOST a match for a common coyote, but it is actually a greater percentile for a common terrier and a
Saint Bernard. Does that mean that it is either one of these? The answer is NO.
is: Can we verify this creature as a new, yet to be identified species?
There was a myth for a thousand years of a HUGE black and white demon beast with red glowing eyes that
would rip a man to shreds if he ventured into its lair. This beast was elusive for a thousand years of tales, until
one brave American set out to prove it existed--and he did!! The BEAST turned out to be the Giant Panda, and the man
was none other that President Theodore Roosevelt (Teddy). So, let's not quickly dismiss the notion of a new species
Over the last few months, a new area of Vietnam has been opened for Scientific Exploration.
The results to date: 21 new species never seen before. I pose the question: How can experts say we know
all the mammals with absolute certainty?
It is claimed that the chimpanzee genes have a 98% similarity to human
genes, and this is promoted as evidence for the claim that apes are related to humans. Does this conclude that man is
really equivalent to a monkey? I pose the question: Does the almost in the DNA sample make the
unidentified beast (Chupacabra) equivalent to a coyote? Almost is not exact. For further
discussion: The 98% match does not mean exact and is therefore a misnomer. For example, using the Man and Ape
sequence: This similarity is an extraordinarily exaggerated generalization grounded on the similarity in the amino
acid sequences of some 30-40 basic proteins present in man and the chimpanzee. There are about one hundred thousand
genes and therefore one hundred thousand proteins encoded by these genes in humans. For that reason, there is no scientific
basis for claiming that all genes of man and ape are 98% similar just because of the similarity in 40 out of 100,000 proteins.
Thank you to University of California-Davis
continues to assist me as I continue my pursuit to determine the orgin of these animals. After I acquired the second beast,
I submitted tissue for DNA extraction and quantitation was performed according to established protocols. Once again,
we have an animal with DNA consistent with wolf and coyote mixture. After speaking with scientists, biologists,
veterinarians, and ranch owners the conclusion is the wolf populus has dwindled dramatically and very few are seen-especially
Mexican Wolves. With continuing DNA, we hope to determine, through scientific evidence, that perhaps this is animal
we call the Chupacabra is in fact a hybrid. Only time will tell.
FACT: DNA results indicated
that this IS NOT a Xoloitzcuintle Breed, or a Xolo Dog.
Congratulations to all
of the teachers around the world that have used this story to further educate their students on the possibility of new scientific
discoveries and for the encouragement of these students to read and write about the Chupacabra. In a day and age when kids
are moving away from science and we are not turning out as many scientists as a Nation, let us contunie to support Scientific
