Racoonigator - aka "The 'Coonigator"
• About this Critter: a hybrid of a Raccoon & an Alligator. Rather small and varmint-like, often said to be seen rooting through trash in Montpelier, Vermont, Texas. From a distance it looks like a regular ol' raccoon until it turns around, revealing a horribly toothy grin.
• History: not much is written about the 'coonigator prior to the “The Monster Spotters Guide to North America" – published July 11, 2007. - the book refers to them breifly as such along with an illustration: “Not much is known about these strange animals. According to reports they look like something out of the movie ‘Critters,’ resembling raccoon in both appearance and behaviour, except that they have fearsome alligator‑like faces.”
