The Mongolian death worm is said to be found in the sands of the Gobi desert. It is described as a large fat red worm. Locals call it the Allghoi Khorkhoi meaning ‘intestine worm’ as it looks like the intestine of a cow. They fear the worm as they report that it spews lethal yellow liquid that kills on contact and it can also kill from a distance by an electric charge. There have been numerous expeditions to try and find it and as yet they have been unsuccessful. It remains unknown whether this really does exist as there has been no conclusive evidence and if such a creature does exist it is more likely to be a legless lizard or reptile because of the climate in which it lives.
