The worm of death in the eyes of witnesses
Some locals claim to have seen dead insects. They live in different areas and most do not know each other, but their descriptions of the insects are surprisingly consistent.
Witnesses said that the dead bug only comes out in June and July of the year, and it will go into the sand dunes during the rest of the year to live a hibernating life; its body length is about 0.5 to 1.5 meters, and its body is red. It has dark spots; there is no obvious head, and the two ends sometimes have horns. When it opens its mouth, it will show its mouth full of fangs.
An explorer who goes deep into the desert to find insects
The insect of death attracted many explorers.
The Czech explorer Ivan Meckler went into the desert three times in 1990, 1992 and 2004 to search for dead insects. He has tried to use explosives to attract insects, and he has also paid a lot of money to hire ultralight aircraft to fly at low altitudes over the Gobi to increase the search range, but found nothing.
British explorer Adam Davis brought an expedition team to explore the desert. On the way, he met a man who claimed to have seen and caught the dead bug and put it in a bag, but the bug ran away after corroding the bag with venom. The man also showed his arm injured by the venom. Davis was very excited about this and increased his search effort and scope. However, in the end only the sculpture of the Death Insect was found.
Living under the sand dunes-lizards in the desert
Some scientists believe that the insect of death is a lizard that lives in the desert. Lizards like to live in dry sand and hibernate in winter. Their living habits are similar to those of dead insects. But lizards have four legs, their appearance is quite different from that of dead insects, and most of them cannot secrete venom. The only poisonous ones are blunt-tailed monsters and beaded lizards, but they have never appeared in Asia.
Ring-shaped body-giant earthworm
Gippsland earthworms are the largest earthworms found in the world. They are distributed in Australia. Due to their scarcity and difficulty to be found, they are included in the list of endangered species. They are about 1 meter long and consist of several sections. The composition, the first 1/3 is dark purple, the back part is pink and gray, the head organs are not obvious, and the appearance of the dead insects is similar, and they also live underground, but the earthworms do not spray venom.
Can spray poison-cobra
If you start with animals that can spray venom, then cobras can also be listed as “suspected creatures.”
When the cobra feels danger, it will spray venom through the small holes in its fangs, and the range of the venom can reach 2 meters. If a person is unfortunately shot in the eye by venom, he may lose his sight.
However, in addition to the attack method, the cobra and the death bug are not compatible with other aspects.
Will discharge-electric eel
The most familiar electric discharge animal is the electric eel, which can emit a voltage of up to 800 volts, which is enough to kill a cow. But electric eels only live in water.
Malus is also called millipede, generally very small in size, but giant Malus can grow to nearly half a meter, even up to 3 meters in ancient times. Its body is also ring-shaped, and its head is not obvious, similar to a dead insect. In addition, Malu can spray liquid with a pungent odor, and some of the liquid sprayed by Malu can even cause people to lose sight for a short time.
It seems that the giant horse land is the animal most resembling a death bug.
People have not found the real dead insects. Some people think that the high temperature and drought in the desert may cause heatstroke and hallucinations. Do you hope that the insect of death is people’s imagination, or do you hope to meet it in the desert like an explorer?
