The Mongolian Death Worm’s Mongolian name is Alloghoi Khorkhoi. Translated, that means "intestine worm".
The Mongolian Deathworm can be two to four feet long, with a bright red color. Its body is thick and wormlike. Supposedly, anything it touches becomes yellow.
Mongolians think that mentioning the Death Worm brings bad luck. They say that it can kill humans and animals instantly, just by looking at them from just a few feet away. The Mongolian Death Worm is believed to spray a deadly poison on enemies when killing, or it may transmit highly lethal electric charges.
