Man, that guy is 62 years old.  Anything 'crypto-' has to with some kind of external sign.  Well, he has a couple.  Take some water.

Speaking of water, do you think the Gobi desert  was once the ocean?  Go to the bottom of the ocean miles down and you'll probably find some of those worms.  That is if they haven't drowned yet.

Here is another article on the same subject:
The Truth Behind the Mongolian Death Worm

It has much more detail than the OP, plus more photographs from an expedition -- plus -- a possible explanation as to what exactly this worm may be.

Anyway, it's an enjoyable read, thumbsup.gif

Seriously,the Mongolian Death Worm, name that makes you expect a fierce creature and it gets killed by some guy who throws a rock at it? You're sure the name is correctly translated from Mongolian? Sounds to me like it should be 'Mongolian death by rock worm" rather.


Quote

“There was the friend of park ranger who had seen the Death Worm three times: the first in 1965 when he saw its head poking out of a hole in the sand; the second the next year when he saw one eating a mouse. The third time was in 1972, when he actually killed a worm by throwing a rock at it, but this time some Russian scientists who were researching snakes in the area took the body away. So it’s likely that a Death Worm specimen today lies forgotten in the vaults of some Russian museum, just as there are other unknown species preserved in museums around the world.”


The article is a nice read, till we go over to the "dragon in well" part, what the hell does that have to do with anything?

I thought they were called Graboids!

Hmm..

firstly, it's nieve to say this thing doesn't exist just because it hasn't been properly catalogued.  When you blink does the whole world disappear for a second?

secondly, we already have creatures catalogued that can produce an electrical shock powerful enough to kill an adult human - eg the electric eel or knifefish.

Some beetles have acidic defences such as this one is described to have.  

keep in mind im not saying it DOES or DOES NOT exist, rather it COULD exist.

  • Frank Herbert, who, oh him the guy who tried showing our sameness through fiction, he's dead, does it matter?

Posted 31 July 2009 - 07:24 PM

Heh, death worms, sounds like Frank Herbert was actually a Prophet, instead of a historian/writer, this makes Eurepodes(I think this is who said it), 'that Historians are Prophets in reverse.', then it would make even more sense, that instead of seeing the future he saw our ancient past......Hmmm, I feel Orion Von Koch returning. Then it would mean Dune was our past, not our future.
