Allghoi khorkhoi: the mongolian death worm

Allghoi Khorkhoi

A few years ago I red a book called “Criptozoología” by José G. González and David Heylen. There I met the Alghoi Khorkhoi a cryptozooligical animal from Gobi’s Desert in Mongolia.

 Before to all we must locate  where Gobi’s Desert is. In mongol, Gobi means “very large and dry” and it is a desert of 1.300.000 km2. It is a so dry desert, with no vegetation and where we could find a temperature variation of 70º between the day and night.

Alghoi Khorkhoi it is a long animal, apparently, without head and legs and very similar to a intestinal parasit. This is a criptozoologichal animal feared by mongolians, because it can to throw a venom, maybe an acid, which can kill a hourse or and a camel easily. To this we must add that it can atack at the distance with electricity.

The first investigation was from 1926, when the north-american biologist, Roy Chapman, collected a book with his experiences during his trip in the Gobi Desert in 1922. Early 90’s, Ivan Mackerle made a hard investigation, reaching the conclussion that is a soft animal, without bones and vegetarian. Maybe it is an important fact because in the places where we have testimonies we could find Cynomorium Songaricum, a plant with poisonous roots.

Which kind of animal could be? According to any biologists and chriptozoologits maybe could not be a worm and it could be a lizard or a snake, but the most strange it is hability to make an electrics shocks. Ivan Mackerle believe that it could be a lizard or a snake related to the “death snake”, a kind of snake from Papua New Guinea and Australia. This theory has two big problems: the first one is that Australia and Papua it is so far away. The second problem it’s that in the description of the Alghoi Khorkhoi it’s a no-legs animal.

Today, we don’t know anything about Alghoi Khorkhoi, it’s origin or appearance, we just have testimonies of some witnesses and some deaths of the cattle of people, in stranges circumstances.
