We have all come across a “spotting game” picture, where we have to find out what’s hidden within those scraggly lines or colorful figures. It has been present in comic books, coloring books, and even on cereal boxes.
It’s now a thing of the past but recently, Filtimes reported that a picture has been going viral which challenges netizens to find a snake among the scattered leaves in a forest.
There’s nothing much going on, except that you really have to look into the picture (of course). According to the source, lots of people have been having a hard time spotting the snake because of how the leaves were positioned.
Here is the picture in question:

As you can see, there appears to be no snake in the picture. Look into it more closely!
We’ll give you a few more seconds.
Have you seen it? Nah? There’s actually an explanation for that. This is because the camouflaged snake is a copperhead.
Copperhead snakes are known to be an ambush predator, where they position themselves in order to wait for unassuming prey to come to its territory.
They are especially active and relentless when pursuing insects, such as caterpillars and freshly-molted cicadas. However, you don’t need to worry as these snakes do not actively seek or attack humans.
In fact, they tend to avoid people and if near one, would immediately leave the area without biting.
In addition to that, they also sport a brown (or as their namesake says, copper) color so that’s why netizens claimed they were having a hard time with the picture above.
Here’s what the copper snake looks like:

You would be surprised to know where it is hidden all along:
