Mongolia Mongolian death worm

News and gossip from Mongolia

"The Mongolian death worm (Mongolian: олгой-хорхой, olgoi-khorkhoi, "large intestine worm") is a creature alleged to exist in the Gobi Desert."

This animal, or a cryptid, is really horrifying. Makes me wish it doesn't actually exist.

"The worm is said to inhabit the western or southern Gobi. In the 1987 book Altajn Tsaadakh Govd, Ivan Mackerle described it as travelling underground, creating waves of sand on the surface which allow it to be detected. It is said it can kill at a distance, either by spraying a venom at its prey or by means of electric discharge."

It's literally horror movie stuff:
