A WOMAN has left social media users horrified after revealing how she spotted a ‘demon’ on the beach — but all was not as it seemed.
Brenda Gonzalez, 32, was walking by the river when she looked to her right and noticed something strange.
In a clip that has garnered 26.4 million views, she captured a dark sea monster lurking in the sand.
Social media users said the creature looked like a demon.
But Gonzales really fooled everyone, because the monster wasn’t a monster at all.
It was actually just her four-year-old dog, Lolita.
“Lolita is a very intelligent dog. She knows a lot of tricks and is very well behaved,” Gonzales, from Taboga, Panama, told Needtoknow.co.uk.
“The beach brings out the crazier side of it and we get excited every time we go there.
“I thought I was sharing a funny video and I ended up terrorizing TikTok.
“I used to only see my wet dog, but once a friend said it looked like a scary creature, and it has been stuck ever since.”
Brenda shared the video on TikTok (@lost_ptyer), where she has 13,800 followers.
In the video, Lolita can be seen lying on the beach, wagging her tail and looking like some kind of sea monster.
Then she turned around and showed her smiling face in front of the camera.
The clip, captioned “I call it Lola,” has garnered 2.9 million likes as well as 35,900 comments from shocked users.
One viewer commented: “My heart starts pounding.”
“NAHHHH BRO DON’T PLAY ME LIKE THIS,” wrote another TikToker, while a third interjected: “No, I won’t sleep after watching this.”
“Crying, I think this is a demon,” admitted another frightened viewer.
Another wrote that their hearts “missed a beat,” while another said that when the dog moved, they threw their phones.
“BRUH I THINK IT’S A MONTH THAT BRINGS BLACK OR SMTH WEIGHT,” Tommy added.
