  • Mongolian Death Worm: The Mongolian Death Worm is an incredible unique beast that is said to live in the Gobi desert. It can be up to 3ft in length, has spike-like projections at both the head and tail, and is dark red in color. The native people call this creature olgoi-khorkhoi, which roughly translates to “large intestine worm.” It has many “creative” ways of killing various creatures. Much like the Red Spitting Cobra, the worm can spit a lethal stream of acid-like venom that can fell even the strongest of men. It also seems to be electrokinetic due to its ability to electrocute prey from a distance. (livescience.com)

  • Xiezi: The Xiezi is a beautiful but terrifying creature of Chinese mythology. It resembles a Unicorn-Dragon hybrid that behaves in a way similar to Anubis the ancient Egyptian god of mummification. Like Anubis, the main task of the Xiezi is judgment. It can distinguish between good and evil as well as what’s right from what’s wrong. Xiezi can kill those unlucky enough to be considered evil by biting or goring. (chinawhisper.com)
