Death Worm

The Death Worm as seen in Lost Tapes

The Death Worm (aka the Mongolian Death Worm) is an extremely dangerous cryptid believed to dwell in burrows beneath the Gobi Desert in southern Mongolia.


Death worms are generally described as being anywhere from 2 to 5 feet in length and 2 inches thick and having bright red bodies with no discernable head or tail resembling a bloody intestine, hence the worms' nickname of "olgoi khorkoi," or "large intestine worm".

Kills in Lost TapesEdit

Unfortunately, as the name implies they are carnivorous and supposedly not afraid to attack humans. Their means of attack is twofold: they can spit a highly corrosive acid at their prey or discharge an electrical current powerful enough to bring down a camel. They are also said to be attracted to the color yellow, possibly why they attacked Greg (who was wearing yellow) multiple times before going after Benton in the episode.
