Mongolian Death Worm, Worm Cryptid, Creature Design by Mel Ayers

Also known as the Olgoi-Khorkhoi, which means intestine worm, the Mongolian Death Worm possesses a very modest design. However, its unique abilities make him seem more like a terrorizing beast from the underworld than an over-sized worm.

At nearly five-feet long, this aggressive worm cryptid has a large round mouth with several rows of sharp teeth and an ability to spit acidic secretion on its victims. Spitting venom, or any kind of substance, on an opposing threat is not uncommon in the animal world. The Mongolian Death Worm also has the ability to emit and electrical shock. The double force of venom spitting and electric shock results in a very painful death. Here I thought wandering in the desolate expanse of the Gobi the desert was bad enough.
