WTH is that? Freakish critter ‘Desert Wyrm’ exposed as fake

A viral video of an unidentified creature known only as ‘Desert Wyrm’ living underground has divided opinion.

The short video shared by Twitter user Nikola3 shows a group of men standing around a hole in the ground. The depression looks to be a natural feature, but it is not known if it was in fact excavation by hand.

The camera pans down into the depths where movement can be seen through a opening on the far side.

The next frame has the camera inside the hole when suddenly the creature appears from the cave ceiling, slithering out of a gap between rocks. The body looks eel-like but with small arms, and its head looks similar to that of a salamander. Two thick antennas protrude from each side of the head giving it an insect-type quality.

The creature did not fear the presence of the cameraman, moving towards him quickly before the clip abruptly ends.

Commenters were divided as to whether the creature was real or not. One user said the video had been debunked months ago as CGI, while another claimed the video was in fact two videos mashed together, proving it to be a fake.

‘So only 11 seconds of footage? C’mon that’s one of the biggest signs it’s fake.’

‘This is content created by YouTube account Erwin Saunders, specifically at the end of the entry Finding a Cave Wyrm. it’s fun, fanciful ‘finding fairies’ type stuff, but entirely fanciful.’

  1. I thought that it might have been another ‘Gain of Function’ critter by Fauxci and his demonic ilk!
    Could this be the new, genetically-engineered ‘Speaker of the House’??
    Maybe D.C. was and is waiting for this creature to mature past the test tube and sequestering phases before introducing it to the House Chambers…!
