Solving riddles is an excellent way to help keep the brain in shape, so I always take up a challenge to try to solve any I see online — with mixed results, I must admit.
But this picture, which I thought I should definitely pass on to you, made me almost tear my hair out of my head in frustration. I just could not solve it, no matter how hard I looked!
The challenge may not sound so difficult: Find the animal that hides in the image.
But it’s not as simple as it seems. Since this image began circulating online, millions of people have become obsessed — but in spite of full-hearted attempts, very few were able to see the cute little animal.
Yes, according to the creators of the image, TopBuzz, only 1 per cent of those who try to solve the mystery manage to do so in less than two minutes. What the others see is simply the old man in the hat.
So now why don’t you give it a try. Can you see the animal hiding in the picture?
Not that easy, right? If you saw nothing other than the old gentleman, you’re not alone. As I said, I searched for ages before I could see the rest…
But at least I will give you a clue.
As is often the case with illusions, the key lies in trying to think a little differently to see the big picture. So think outside the box — and try to notice some unusual details in the man’s face.
Does he not have a kind of strange nose, for example? And what about his eyes? Think about it and try again!
Okay, if you couldn’t solve it, here’s another clue.
The animal that hides in the image is often called man’s best friend. Please try again, before your read the answer down below.
Are you ready?
Here’s the answer!
Yes, besides the man, there’s also a dog in the picture — sitting on a rug and chewing on a bone. Now you may understand what I meant by my nose and eyes; they formed the dog and his legs!
And the dog, of course, becomes obvious once you see the picture upside down.
