Here is ‘the most invisible’ animal driving Twitter – and biologists – crazy

Find the snake

One celebrity biologist says it “might be the most invisible” he’s ever seen.

Others on Twitter think they are being pranked.

But there really is a snake in the “find the snake” tweet driving people mad.

With some image manipulation, and some crayon work, we can just about make it visible.

 


“Of all camouflaged animals, this might be the most invisible I’ve ever (eventually) seen”, said celebrity biologist Richard Dawkins.

Others are convinced they are being pranked.

But there really is a snake in the “find the snake” tweet that is driving them mad. It is right in the middle of the frame, it is not particularly small, and there is no funny business going on – just some really good natural camouflage.

 

 

 

 

 

The trick, as Dawkins says, is to look for a repeating pattern of triangles – which are slightly more visible with the contrast turned up – that form an “S” shape.

Only the two curves of the snake’s body are really visible, even once you know exactly where to look.

… but you may have trouble spotting it, even zoomed in, without markers.

 

 

 

The snake is there, promise

If so, don’t despair, it’s not just you.
