The Gobi Death Worm is a reddish creature resembling a sausage that dwells beneath the sands of the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. For hundreds of years, nomadic people have reported encounters with this terrifying beast which is reportedly capable of spraying a lethal poisonous mist or even fatally electrocuting people from a distance. The corrosive liquid that it spits is said to turn anything it touches yellow and touching the worm is believed to be fatal.
In the Mongolian language it is referred to as the 'intestine worm' due to it similarity to a cow's intestine. Its body is several feet long and as thick as a man's arm and has no discernable features aside from its segmentations. The Death Worm appears during hot summer months following the rains. Those who have seen it up close report that it lacks a mouth, eyes or nostrils and that it does not slither like a snake, but rather, rolls or shuffles along the sand. It is unclear as to how it delivers its deadly spray or electric shock, but it may have a concealed proboscis that serves this purpose.
Such is the dread of the Death Worm that Mongolians often refuse to talk about it, fearing this will bring them bad luck. The creature was dismissed as a fantasy during the former communist regime. However, even today, Buddhist monks believe it is evil and possesses supernatural powers.
Over the years, numerous fruitless expeditions have been launched in attempts to capture it. A Czech explorer tried to drive it to the surface by detonating explosives in the sand and later attempted to photograph from the air using ultralight aircraft.
