Challenge: Only a few can spot to animal hiding in this illusion – can you do it?

I just love taking on optical illusions and visual puzzles – something I think most of us have in common.

It exercises your mental faculties, and it’s a fun way to challenge yourself.

You’re never too old for brain teasers and tricky puzzles. In fact, they become more important as you advance in age.

Whenever my grandchildren come to visit, we always spend some time solving mind teasers and doing different challenges. Last time, my 11 year old grandson showed me the image below on his iPad – and I had a heck of a time trying to figure it out.

Find the animal in the picture

Apparently, this one has been doing the rounds online for the last few years, and not many are able to solve it right away. Once my grandson told me his trick, it became a lot easier. But I’m not telling!

Your task is to spot the animal in the picture! Can you do it?

Did you manage?

If not, try looking at the screen from different distances – after some experimenting, you might be able to make out the silhouette.

Opinions differ on whether the animal is a wolf, a dog or a fox. What do you think it looks like?
