 A woman in Spain has stumbled across a strange double-headed creature, and the internet is going crazy.

Luján Eroles, 46, was walking at her courtyard when she came across the critter, before she shouted her friends across in horror.

The rough skinned creature looked like a serpent with two heads, measured at about 10cm and with skin as passionate as a snake.

The creature seemed to blink in one eye, which astonished Luján’s friends.

Luján said: “I looked down and I encountered the strange animal, fear struck me knowing that it could have been poisonous.

“I had never seen anything like it, it was just like a snake and its eyes were so strange.

“We all thought it was a mutant animal, which is why we filmed it and put it online for people to give us their opinions.”

It turns out the creature may have been an Elephant Hawk-Moth Caterpillar, known for their horn-like curved spines.

Luján added: “We did an extensive google search on the subject and also several people told us that it was a caterpillar which will become a butterfly.

“The reason it was in my courtyard was because it was feeding off vines near my house, and it was camouflaged to look like a form of viper to scare off predators.”
