A Real Life Rabbit-Duck Illusion?

Gizmodo published a story recently, concerning what appears to be a real-life version of an old school Rabbit-Duck optical illusion. The original was a memorable example, where if you looked at it one way it was a rabbit, but in the same time it could also resemble a duck. I hope this one’s just a hoax (like Fiji Mermaid was), but I’ll let you decide. Was it after all some crafty taxidermist, who recreated the effect in real life??? If so, I just hope you don’t consider this a DIY type of post. For more similar examples, check out another real life Rabbit-Duck, Frog-Horse or Young Lady-Old Hag illusions…

    1. Not to be rude but Jackalopes DO NOT have duckbilled ears. I am from Arizona and the jackalope has antelope antlers. Hence the name jackalope. But anyway, that thing is creepy looking. Someone must have been extremely bored. I remember seeing a cow’s head with ostrich legs. CREEPY!

  1. There is a childrens picture book called Duck! Rabbit! It uses just the outline of that the figure in the picture shows. Its really a fun little story!

    As for this, they did a great job, it made me look at the picture twice.

  2. I think this is legit. Look at the picture carefully. You can see glass and the reflection. I don’t think a photoshopper could create the glass.

  3. You know, if people could use some COMMON SENSE they would NOT put stupid comments like oohh it’s SOOOOO freaky!!!! I am NOT trying to be rude here, but come ON people! When your older you will regret putting that up here. I`m NOT saying you will become like 16 and regret it, I doubt that age would be even NECCESSARY for this site….sorry boss if your 16 i`m just trying to put some common sense in this world.

  4. as long as the animals aren’t real i’m fine with this illusion, and if the animals are real, all i gotta say is: MURDERER!!!

  5. look i am easily scared, that picture is very disturbing, what i say they have done is they have gotten a taxidermist ( I HATE TAXIDERMY ) to fuse a ducks beak with a rabbits head >:-(
