texas legend

Soooo...My university has this fountain

The Sombrilla fountain has a legend. If you jump into before finals, you will get a ll A’s in your classes, regardless on how you did through out the semester. However, UTSA doesn’t allow people to mess with the fountain and if you try to jump in you will be expelled and put in jail.

Today however, I don’t know if this person cursed everyone or blessed everyone but this is pretty fun.

(Secretly hoping the person who put soap in the fountain blessed everyone with A’s)


A goatman/shapeshifter being. It preys on the weak. Accompanied by a metallic smell like pennies or blood or a god awful rotting smell. It can change form to something human like to trick its prey, although in appearance its human its actions are not. It has trouble with motor functions in this form and can’t seem to make thoughts that we can comprehend on its own. It imitates what it has seen you do thinking it can blend in. Its movements are jerky.”

Huay Chivo

The Huay Chivo is a legendary Mayan beast. It is a half-man, half-beast creature, with burning red eyes, and is specific to the Yucatán Peninsula.


  •  It is often said to be an evil sorcerer who can transform himself into a supernatural animal, usually a goat, dog or deer, in order to prey upon livestock.
  •  In recent times it has become associated with the chupacabras.
  • Alleged Huay Chivo activity is sporadically reported in the regional press.
  •  Local Maya near the town of Valladolid, in Yucatán, believe the Huay Chivo is an evil sorcerer that is capable of transforming into a goat to do mischief and eat livestock.
  • The name Huay Chivo combines Spanish and Yucatec Mayan terms Huay or Uay comes from Waay in Yucatec Maya, meaning sorcerer, spirit or animal familiar, while Chivo is Spanish for goat, literally meaning sorcerer-Goat.

The Goatman of Maryland

According to legend, Goatman is an axe-wielding, half-man, half-animal creature that was once a scientist who worked in the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center.

  •  The tale holds that he was experimenting on goats, the experiment went awry, and he began attacking cars with an axe, roaming the back roads of Beltsville, Maryland.
  • A variation of the legend tells of Goatman as an old hermit who lives in the woods, seen walking alone at night along Fletchertown Road.
  • Apparently, the doctor confessed to creating the Goatman by crossing the DNA of a goat and his assistant William Lottsford, but the experiment wen terribly wrong and result was the malicious, genetic atrocity known as the Goatman. As patently ridiculous as this origin story may be, it bears remarking that is very similar to that of the CHUPACABRA, which was also allegedly created in a now long abandoned U.S. lab located in Puerto Rico.

Lake Worth Monster

It is a North American cryptid reported to live in and around Lake Worth, just outside of Fort Worth, Texas.

  • Numerous sightings in July 1969 led to the belief of a half-man, half-goat creature living in Lake Worth in Texas.
  • Terry Deckard, a reporter, wrote an article about it in the newspaper, which made the front page. The headline read: “Fishy Man-Goat Terrifies Couples Parked at Lake Worth.”
  • The couples that reported the sightings described it as a half-man, half-goat, with fur and scales.
  • A man named Tommy Burson soon after reported the creature landed on his car after jumping out of a tree. An 18-inch scar on the side of his car was shown by Burson as proof. The police at this point decided to investigate. Up until then, they had laughed at any reports they received, thinking it was a hoax.
  • The following night, reports came in of the creature hurling a tire from a bluff at overlooking bystanders, which was reportedly witnessed by up to 10 individuals.
