Journalist David Farrier has returned from an expedition with camerman Christie Douglas to Mongolia in which they aimed to find and film the Mongolian death worm, but did they succeed in finding any evidence of the elusive cryptid ?

"There may not actually be solid evidence of an acid-spitting, lightning-throwing Mongolian deathworm living in the Gobi Desert but there will definitely be a documentary about it. "

No solid evidence, and making a documentary about it means its all fake...

Anytime I hear about the "death worm" this is what pops in to my head.

Meh, it seemed to mainly be based on conjecture and legends...didn't think it existed. Too "good" to be true.

Fact of the matter is it shouldn't have been too hard to document and find if it was real considering the large breeding population that would be needed for it to exist. That and worms and dry places don't go well together.

I think them making a documentary will act as an excuse for them for having a failed expedition ( Which is expected though)......Even though I like the Mongolian Death Worm for its amazing features and abilities and sheer awesomeness, I'm afraid it doesn't exist.

How cute...we go on a wild turkey chase,return empty handed and make an epic story about it....

And then some people wonder why stories such as "Atlantis" keep popping up as reality...

ill be the first one to say that theres no such thing as a mongolian death worm.
but i wonder how mongolian death worm would taste, and/or could you grill that? or just fry it in a bigarse frying pan with extra dirt and sand for flavor.

Yeah, they're the ones who propagate the stories of the worm and its acid spitting abilities. No real evidence of it existing though
