7 El Cuero

Cuero is Spanish for “leather” or “cowhide,” and El Cuero is a giant flap of ferocious flesh inhabiting Lago Lacar in the Andes. El Cuero is said to be a meaty tarp covered in daggerlike claws or teeth with eyestalks extending from wherever this creature might keep its brain.

The Scully explanation is that it’s a giant freshwater stingray like the kind that can be found in South Asian rivers. But there’s not much reason for a stingray to snatch a baby from an Andean shoreline or suck blood through a straw coming from the part of its body that doubles as a face.

Stingrays don’t have eyestalks, and their skeletons are low profile. But they do have large eyes for their height. People might just make a cute animal into a creepy mutant through their imagination filter.
