    Northern chupacabra, larva stage. That's not good, not good at all.

    They are similar but the larva stage of Northern Chupacabra is a bit thinner and moves horizontally, while the brown-hooded owlet is a bit thicker and moves vertically. It's an easy mistake to make though.

    According to Tobin's Spirit Guide, that's a Class 5, Audio-Sonic Non-Vaporous Free Floating Apparition.

    Just don't let it crawl into your ear! Stay awake if you have to.

    So will my Lab, Pudge. He likes his veggies and he's a lot cuter than a horn worm!
