Mongolian Death Worm

ADDPMP747

The Mongolian Death Worm first came to western attention as a result of American explorer Roy Chapman Andrews’s book On the Trail of Ancient Man (1926), in which he described second-hand tales of the monster he had heard of at a gathering of Mongolian officials, “None of those present ever had seen the creature, but they all firmly believed in its existence and described it minutely.”

The worm is said to inhabit the western or southern Gobi. It is reported as being able to kill at a distance, either by spraying a venom at its prey or by means of electric discharge. It primarily lives and burrows underground, creating waves of sand on the surface which allow it to be detected. However, no photographs or remains had ever been found. Because of the lack of hard evidence, the Mongolian death worm is widely accepted as solely a legend.
