Actually, the locals say the acid spitting and electrocuting is not true. For more information, you could talk to Richard Freeman.

Of course it may well be there are two subspecies, both similar at a quick glance, one of which produced an electric current and one that spits up acidic spray. I can see electricy evolving in this enviroment for an ambush preditor who lays half-burried in sand on a migration trail or the path to a watering hole for some animal to brush up aginst it and unleash its stored charge to drop something much larger than itself while it feeds.

Perhaps, but considering that there's literally no evidence for this cryptid at all (beyond verbal accounts from the locals), trying to classify it and any hypothetical relatives might be jumping the gun a bit.

Pretty nice. I still under the impression that it is probably a species of arthopod.

Acid-spitting is not too far-fetched, if you think of it as stomach acid; many insects spit digestive juices onto their prey. Although it is rare some animals DO generate lectricity, as we all know; perhaps the "blast" is merely an exaggeration?

Perhaps, but it seems awfully unlikely that an animal would evolve both abilities at once, especially since it apparently has very few (if any) predators to deal with. Acid spit and electric currents seem awfully overkill for regular hunting, don't you think?

I agree, but as Shakespeare once wrote, "there are more things in heaven and earth than dreamt of in your philosophy, Horatio."

One of my favorites, personally. Not sure what I believe. A projectile venom or corrosive enzyme I could believe. An electrical current I could believe. But both at once? That's just not how nature works.

Though to be fair, both those ideas are just theories. The only constant is that it can kill at a distance, which I can believe. Worm or reptile, it's something we really should see more of in film. I mean, I dig Nessie, Sasquatch and El Chupacabra, but we could use some more variety.

Unless it generates some form of liquid similar to battery acid.

Yeah. It already sounds like something straight of out a Science Fiction movie, so it's pretty odd that no one's ever tried to make a flick out of it. Maybe out of fear of being a Dune or Tremors rip-off, but unoriginality never stopped people before...

Great work! What did you think of my Death Worm? Its probably a reptile if anything. I doubt a real worm would be able to survive in such conditions.

Thanks! Yours was cool as well. :D I suppose the cobra idea might not be too far off- perhaps the so-called sulphuric acid is an exaggeration of spitting venom? Not sure, but I'll definitely need more evidence before I put any stock into this one's existance.

Thanks! One of my favorite parts is the camel bones for some reason. Small details, go figure. The only reason why I believe that it MIGHT be electrical is because of it's shape, otherwise it would be pure superstition to me.
