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.
There's nothing better than an optical illusion.Something about the way they disrupt our realities means they make us feel uncomfortable - but in a deeply intriguing way.
And there's no shortage of them online.
And sometimes an image really takes the internet by storm.
And who remembers this?
And, earlier this year, this image went viral.
if you can see a beach, ocean sky, rocks and stars then you are an artist, But its not a painting its lower part of… https://t.co/6PcbXCuZtS— X (@X)1562087487.0
And while that image was more of a "hmm, interesting..." kind...The latest snap to go viral on Twitter has elicited quite a different reaction - one of absolute confusion and in some, pure frustration.
And many are spending a lot of time looking.Trying to find something in the image which some can't even quite believe is actually there.
The image in question?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.
Here's the picture in question.
via: TwitterAt first, it looks like a pretty standard outdoor scene. But apparently, there's a leopard there. Yeah, we know. Us neither.
In fact, the Twitter user who first shared the image initially thought it was a prank."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.
But then, she realized.This wasn't a trick. There was a leopard in the image - it was just horribly difficult to spot.
And people couldn't cope.Many users commented that they'd looked for a long time, and still couldn't find the cat in question.
Some made this joke.
@BellaLack I would be extremely dead before I spotted it.— Laura Jennings (@Laura Jennings)1569654545.0
And even those who did find it ...Claimed they'd had a lot of trouble in the process. You'll need to get your photo editing tools ready for this one.
In fact, some were ready to give up.
@BellaLack Someone please pm me the answer. I’m gonna go crazy if I stare at this dirt anymore.— Zack Ickowicz (@Zack Ickowicz)1569577460.0
Some pointed this out.
@BellaLack Yep leopards are really rogues 😅 https://t.co/e66xo2TIp3— Ⓛⓞ (@Ⓛⓞ)1569576020.0
Although some made this upsetting point.
@BellaLack Unfortunately in a few years time people won’t be able to play this game as there won’t be any Leopards to spot!😩— email@example.com (@firstname.lastname@example.org)1569595166.0
The original tweet was followed with this plea.
