While many optical illusions will blow your mind, this one will have you shaking your head in disbelief—literally. At first glance it just looks like a row of black and white lines; however, if you stare at the image while shaking your head from left to right, an unexpected image of will slowly emerge… Can you see it?
The image, which is currently going viral, was first posted on Twitter by New Zealand-based nanotech engineer Dr Michelle Dickinson. She writes, “You can only see this optical illusion if you shake your head (I’m serious).” Internet users soon started sharing their thoughts on the strange image and their tips for how to see the hidden animal. If shaking your head doesn’t work, try squinting or moving the image back and forth (if you’re on your phone). If you still can’t figure it out, scroll down for the answer.
Can you spot the animal hidden in this optical illusion? Try shaking your head.
If you shake your phone it works too
