    Obviously they used a picture of a real Djinn to fake a Chupacabra photo.

    I love it when these, oldies but goodie, HOAXes with the very same pictures reappear as different HOAXes. Some folks are gullible beyond comprehension...

    Just a quick check on the proper explanation for the "Djinn"

    Dear ****** Ivan

    Yes, this sculpture can be found in one of our smaller caves called the “Crystal Quest”, which is joint onto Cox’s Cave. Crystal Quest is an underground fantasy adventure and consists of heroes, princesses and mythical dragons. It is a tale of good verses evil, and the goblin in your picture is part of the scenery. You may be interested to know that J.R.R. Tolkien’s description of Deep Helm in “Lord of the Rings” was itself inspired by a visit to Cheddar Caves.

    If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Yours sincerely

    Cheddar Caves & Gorge
    Somerset, England.

    Aren't all Djinns just Chupacabra wanna-be's, anyway?:smile:
