The Gobi Desert’s Sausage Shaped Bringer of Death!
So it has long been my opinion that the Mongolian Death Worm is only second best to Woodbooger in fantastic cryptid name having fame! I mean three words and you know exactly where it’s from, what it brings and what it looks like (Well technically it’s alternate name the “Large Intestine Worm” may do a better job of describing that but you get the point)
Anyways this is technically our second time doing this guy but the first time was before this was online, here’s the submissions from the first time through.
And here’s what I wrote the first time through, and really all you need to know! (also entertaining to see how much more plagiaristic to the point i was back then):
The Mongolian death worm (“large intestine worm”) is a creature reported to exist in the Gobi Desert. It is generally considered a cryptid: an animal whose sightings and reports are disputed or unconfirmed.
It is described as a bright red worm with a wide body that is 2 to 5 feet (0.6 to 1.5 m) long and potentially spiked on the ends.
The worm is the subject of a number of extraordinary claims by Mongolian locals – such as the ability of the worm to spew forth acid that, on contact, will turn anything it touches yellow and corroded (and which would kill a human), as well as its reported ability to kill at a distance by means of electric discharge.
We got together with a bunch of old buds last evening (all of whom I have bullied into judging previously) and just did a good old fashioned let’s talk about these, each pick our three faves and see where the votes leave us… so thanks to all! results posted below!
