That Snake is Where??

Here’s a pretty cool email that I received from The Dodo this morning. See if you can find the snake in the photo. I couldn’t without cheating. The answer is below so if you get stuck, scroll down to discover how well this Copperhead hides in plain sight.

Enjoy!

Some animals simply prefer to blend in — and here’s one of them.

Believe it or not, there is a snake in this photo below. He’s so perfectly camouflaged among the dried leaves, it’s nearly impossible to spot him.

Go ahead, give it try.

Twitter user @SssnakeySci, a herpetology student from Florida, recently shared the mind-boggling photo — and it’s sent the internet into a tizzy, receiving thousands of likes and retweets.

The general consensus seems to be: that snake is super hard to find (if he can be found at all). Here is just a sample of the response.

Still, even with her annotations, seeing him takes a keen eye.

Here he is, a little closer up. Can you see him now?

Nicely done, snake!
