New footage taken from a desert in Portugal may have caught a chupacabara on camera (video below).

The clip catches a mysterious creature on two legs, slowly pacing through the desert with its head stooped.

The eerie, pseudo-humanoid beast blends in perfectly with its beige surroundings while birds can be heard chirping in the distance.

But before the viewer can get a closer look, the bizarre animal quickly disappears behind a large bush as the camera pans out on the dry wasteland. There is a parked car and other forms of life present at the location. When the video zooms back in, the creature is nowhere to be seen.

The video was posted online about a month ago and has already garnered over 200,000 views, according to Daily Mail.

But there’s been serious debate as to what the creature might be, or if it's even real.

Some say it’s a chupacabara -- Sasquatch’s Hispanic cousin -- while others think the beast is Bigfoot himself.

The legend of chupacabara started in Puerto Rico when farmers noticed their goats were drained of blood. The myth quickly spread throughout Latin countries.

However, many skeptical users believe the video is fake.

“Extremely poor camera quality. I don't believe it ...” says one user.

Another commenter added: “Funny how you can never get a clear picture of these so-called alien sightings. Hard for anyone to believe them when it happens all the time.”
