As mentioned mostly small things. Scorpions as well.

The last time I was in El Yunque i camped out right next to a river and some random people showed up who were fishing there around 2 in the morning. I think that’s illegal, we reported it, but the things they caught surprised us all. Really weird fish and some type of eels.

Some people have spotted the elusive Wolfaroo.

The Wolfaroo stands on two hind legs that are very similar to Australia's Red Kangaroo but has a Wolf like face and snout., It's only about 3 feet in height and can move through the forest jumping as high as 12 feet and has been clocked at 33 mph.

It feeds on river shrimps, insects and fruits.

Not to be confused with the Chuppacabra.

I’ve never heard of that. Maybe that’s why so many people have said they’ve spotted aliens in El Yunque.

AleksR,

The aliens go to El Yunque to see the Wolfaroo in it's natural habitat

They were first discovered by Darwin on his way to the Galapagos.

Sigmund Freud wrote an article on their mating habits.

sail445,

Per El Vocero newspaper, the aliens are no longer interested in the Wolfaroo. They have been watching the Chupacabra for several years now.

(Sorry, I couldn't help it. You guys had me laughing here in the office.)

Thank you Bunny and St Croix Thanks you for all the wonderful creatures you sent to St Croix's Amazon River Basin Refuge, BTW it's the larges river basin in the Caribbean it connects to El Yunque via underground wells.

Maybe you can Hop on over for our Easter Egg hunt next year.
