People Are Losing Their Minds Trying to Find the Leopard in This Photo

Share on Facebook

There’s nothing like a weird picture to bring the internet together. Be it an optical illusion, a giant celebrity, or some incredibly well-applied makeup, trying to figure out why something looks the way it does is a surprisingly fun communal activity. But the latest one to go viral is driving everyone on Twitter absolutely crazy.

One Twitter user posted an image she’d been sent by a pal which supposedly contains a leopard. Or does it? The entire social media platform went into meltdown trying to find the camouflaged feline – and we’re still not quite convinced we can see it.

Something about the way they disrupt our realities means they make us feel uncomfortable – but in a deeply intriguing way.

This viral Instagram account is designed to freak you out using expertly applied (and undeniably creepy) makeup.

Like this ingeniously snapped photo of what looks like a giant squirrel trying to break into a car.

Professional wrestler and actor, Thor Bjornsson (who played the Mountain on Game of Thrones), posed with a normal-sized coffee cup – or did he?

While many saw it as a beautiful beach scene, it was actually an old garage door in need of a lick of paint. Wild, right?

The latest snap to go viral on Twitter has elicited quite a different reaction – one of absolute confusion and in some, pure frustration.

Trying to find something in the image which some can’t even quite believe is actually there.

It contains a leopard – or does it? The giant cat is so well camouflaged that many just cannot spot it – no matter how hard they try.

At first, it looks like a pretty standard outdoor scene. But apparently, there’s a leopard there. Yeah, we know. Us neither.

“Someone just sent this to me and asked me to find the leopard. I was convinced it was a joke… until I found the leopard. Can you spot it?” wrote @BellaLack.

This wasn’t a trick. There was a leopard in the image – it was just horribly difficult to spot.

Many users commented that they’d looked for a long time, and still couldn’t find the cat in question.

If the leopard was using its camouflage to sneak up on us, we’d be goners for sure.

Claimed they’d had a lot of trouble in the process. You’ll need to get your photo editing tools ready for this one.

Some Twitter users appealed to the kindness of strangers in order to help them solve the mystery.

Leopards are notoriously good at hiding in plain sight – although this particular image might be the best hiding we’ve seen yet.

While this leopard is literally hard to spot, it’s also true that they’ll be figuratively harder and harder to spot in the future.

But, luckily for the optically-challenged amongst us, many people ignored the request.

There’s just one problem. Even with the leopard pointed out, we still can’t see it. 

Finally, we can spot it. But if we zoom out again … nope, it’s gone. Infuriating. Hungry for more optical illusions? Keep scrolling for thirty of the best.
