The myth of the chupacabara first began in Puerto Rico, after farmers found their goats drained of blood.
However, new footage claims to have caught moving images of the beast on camera as it wanders through the Portuguese desert.
In the short clip, the mysterious creature is seen to pace slowly through the wasteland on two legs, while stooping its head.
The bizarre man-like beast neatly blends in with its muted surroundings, while birds are heard to chirp eerily in the distance.
However, the creature doesn’t stay in view for long, as it swiftly disappears behind a large bush.
The camera then pans out to show the rest of the desert – exposing a parked car and other forms of life, which had been blissfully unaware of the unfolding drama.
