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.
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!
