This is one of the most strangest of cryptids. Does it exist...? If so, what is it...really. A strange unknown snake or salamander. Or could it actually be a worm. Stranger still...could they be an alien life form left behind by a careless visitor centuries ago??
Natives of the Gobi Desert region have long told stories about the Mongolian Death Worm, and the creature came to Western attention through the writings of Roy Chapman Andrews, the man said to be the inspiration for Indiana Jones.

I believe it was left by a careless visitor, and it doesn't look like it would be a snake, or a salamander, but it does look like a worm...but then again it is a drawing. But if it was left from so long ago, wouldn't it be dead by now? Even Alien's die at one point or another. But then again it could be alien itself......hmmmmm......

I've honestly never heard of this until now. Honestly, it looks like a sort of parasite than a worm... okay, so worms CAN be parasites too, like tapeworms or ringworms, but I digress...
It looks interesting. I'd like to see more cases of this, but then again I can't find many accounts of this things, other than your link.
I wouldn't say this is an alien being, but maybe a mutated/evolved species of worm/parasite. I have a hard time believing that it emits deadly electrical charges, but I'll remain open-minded about this since this is my first time hearing about it.
Honestly though, if it's reportedly 5 ft in length, it'd be a pretty easy thing to spot, unless it can camouflage itself or burrow underground like an Earthworm.
