Keera Ann Fox found this “Spot The Object” interesting photo on a website she regularly visits. Can you spot the hidden animal in it? Hidden animals in optical illusions are something we often post, but not so often we have real life photos of this kind (usually it goes about painted images!)- This is Ann’s email: “Hi, Vurdlak! I love your website “Mighty Optical Illusions“. Another website I love is The Daily Coyote. Today’s post had a real life picture that also functioned as an optical illusion: Is the coyote in there or not? Attached is the photo. I haven’t asked its owner and photographer, Shreve Stockton, for permission to submit it to your site. I hope she doesn’t mind.”

And for all of you British visitors, I added a video commercial for a new show that airs on MTV. ‘The Bedroom Diaries’ is another frank programme, following the lives of nine young people on a personal journey through the stormy waters of adolescence. You can find it lower in the sidebar, and it was sponsored by MTV. Hurray!

  • Super1Goten

    its kinda hard to see though.

  • Anonymous

    I see it!!!!!!!
    It’s in the middle

  • Kyle

    thats crazy i dont think its real though. i think the eye might be photoshoped in. Either way its a sick illusion.

  • edouard

    yes, very easy indeed. the eye is to recognizable.

    Intersting anyway.

  • Blurred Birder

    You sure it’s not at Lion

  • Chris

    I got it too!

  • Alice Digits

    Pretty picture… Is it actually considered an optical *illusion* though? Not that it matters to me, I like that this website uses those terms as guidelines instead of set rules.

  • animal lover

    thats a great illusion! although it can be confusing at some points :P

  • Anonymous

    I feel special:)
    I managed to find it without straining my eyes. Lol..
    It looks real, but where is the eye from?

  • Screaming Doubles

    thats a pretty good photo. its bouncing around the idea that like, for every image you take outside, there are at least 20 living animals/insects.

    this photo also ties in with this video my grandpa just sent me.

    check it out, its about how deep sea creatures act, and the camo of shallow water creatures like octopus and cuttle fish. it was a pretty dece vid.

    I found the Coyote. Did you notice the two faces slightly above and to the left of center? One looks like a puppy and the other is kinda human.

    I see an eye, but it looks more like some sort of feline.

  • Snowman25

    Geez that took me all of 2 seconds to see it. Most of it is hidden but you can see the eye and top part of it’s nose real easy.

  • Bob

    i see an animals face near the bottom of the picture. it’s def. not waldo, so it must be the coyote.

  • Majin Boo

  • Anonymous

    wow i actually found this one easily too

  • Nefarius

    Whoa, i see it very well hidden good one :)

  • Anonymous

    I shopped it for ya if you can’t see it.


  • Sooshin

    It was rather easy because the beast is in the center. If it was off centered, it will be harder.
    In the real situation, in a wide field, I would never find it before it attacks me!

  • pacman99

    I saw it very easily but now i look back i dont know how. I guess it was the eye, it stood out…..

  • Anonymous

    I agree with super2goten.

  • Anonymous

    look at the bottom bar (no not the space bar you twit) it is there
    because i have spotted it (lots of you have bad spelling)

  • mike

    i found it easially to and i think that it adds to the ligetimicicy of it being real.
    another reason its probally real, if there are sill doubts, the animal seems like a preaditor(it looks like a cat to me), meaning it would want to hide giving great oppertunities for optical illusions!

    o.o got it in one… Just looked at it and that Coyote was the first thing i saw…

  • YoMamma

    Omg this is cool! As soon as i looked at this picture I saw the animal’s eye! Freaky! Awesome though! :)

  • Anonymous

    This is all suggestion, which i’m not saying is bad. All that was needed was an eye in a natural background (which probably was really hard to find) and combined with the word coyote, the brain automatically fills the outside space to try and see what it’s looking at.

  • Anonymous

    I think the eye is photoshopped……but still good

  • i can c it

  • Toffy
