A hydra.

Hydra or hydras are one of the races of RuneScape. They are serpent-like creatures with at least two heads. When a head is cut off, another two grow in its place; at least, this was the case for Loarnab.

Hydra can supposedly grow to limitless size, given they have an adequate source of food.[1] In the Zarosian Empire, they were considered vermin and were said to live off scraps in the sewers.[2]
