Optical illusions can be fascinating and really confusing, making the obvious seem impossible.
A recent picture that has been making waves online is proof of this. The picture of a black crow — most people believe.
If you look at the photo carefully, you’ll realize that there’s something else! Now the illusion, created by accident, has caused thousands of people all over the world to scratch their heads.
It all began with the image appearing a while ago on Reddit, but a few days ago it started trending on Twitter — and then the thing just took off. It has caught a lot of interest — and many say they have never seen anything like it.
“Is fascinating because…”
In the photo, posted by Robert Maguire, there seems to be a crow. And most people believe that. However, it’s wrong — can you see what’s in the picture?

And right he is! At first glance, it looks like a black crow facing to the right. If you look a bit more carefully, you will soon see Robert is correct.
In fact, it’s a black cat that’s turning its neck back and looking into the camera. The other eye is a little hard to see, but it’s true!
How many legs?
This illusion, however, is just one of many who have surfaced online over the years. Another one is the classic elephant cartoon. Can you guess how many legs does this elephant have?
While some believe the correct answer is six, others consider that only one leg is intact. So there are different answers — how many legs do you think the elephant in this picture has?
Fascinating! This two optical illusions really fooled me! Now press the share button to pass on this challenge to your friends!
