El Cuero is a strange, carnivorous, aquatic cryptid thought to dwell in the Chilean glacial Lake Lacar, which is located in the Andes Mountains.

AppearanceEdit

El Cuero, meaning "cowhide" or "leather" resembles a primitive stingray at most. It has wide pectoral fins and a long, whip-like tail, absent of a barb. Its eyes are on stalks and its mouth is apparently extendable, like that of a sturgeon. Eyewitness have also reported seeing a series of razor sharp claws along the fringes of El Cuero, which the creature uses to secure its prey. The size of El Cuero ranges from 2-5 feet across and it weights approximately 65 pounds.

Possible ExplanationsEdit

There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:

  • An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
  • A giant stingray

TriviaEdit

  • The generally-accepted explanation is that El Cuero is a giant freshwater stingray.
