General Information

Tatzelwurm also called Alps Dragon is a cryptid reported in several areas in Europe, including Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, and many other places in the European Alps for hundreds of years. It has several regional names including Stollenwurm, Springwurm, Arassas, Praatzelwurm and Bergstutzen. Reports of this creature vary in description, from a serpentine reptile or amphibian, to a feline chimera, to something resembling a small Asian dragon. The most common description is of a lizard/snake-like creature with stubby appearance, two front legs without hind legs, completely covered with scales, and a cat-like face. The Tatzelwurm is also believed to be dangerously venomous; able to kill a human instantly with its bite, breathing poisonous fumes and even possessing acid blood.

The prank

This one was a team effort. We had all donated recordings of sheep calls, and RC cars. We tracked this creature and decided to hide in the forest, having the cars drive around playing the recordings. It was a game of tag with a dragon chimera.
