One of the benefits from having such big audience is constant flow of optical illusion submissions we get on a daily basis. The only problem is when person who submitted the illusion isn’t aware of the original author, and apart from the picture attached the email lacks additional information for me to look up its origins on the interwebs. This is again where you come in handy.

Check out the painting on your right. The style somewhat resembles these previous hidden animal illusions, but am not exactly sure if this is the case. How do we link this awesome work to its origins? Any clues?

If we change the subject back to the site’s theme, what do you see in this painting that makes it qualified as an optical illusion? How many wolves are there? Is there something hidden inside it? Anything else? Let’s see what can you come up with!

  • kirolusion

    so far I see 10 wolves chasing a linx, which is in bottom right corner

    • Bert de vrinkel

      So far I do not see sheeps. Too bad!

    • Pods Of Bob

      Stare at the bottom left Wolf and the to of the stream merges with the top wolves. DO NOT focus at the wolves just the one I said. If you do it right the little head just peaking out will form an eye and the wolf on the onther side of it will form the other.

  • Apurva

    1 wolf face and a 9 wolves pack chasing a cat?

  • Rickford

    I’m counting ten wolves. Besides being a great illusion, it is an attractive piece as well.

  • Pod

    I can see 20 wolves and one wild cat.

    • Beverly

      This is a great website. I see 10 wolves,1 Lg face and one tiger.Keep them coming!

  • hitya

    Love this, it’s perfect <333

  • Angel

    9 wolves including large one and one cheetah or some other cat type animal at the bottom

  • I see a total of 10 wolves chasing a bobcat. Love the painting.

  • Nine wolves (wich makes one big wolf) here are chasin’ some kind of a big cat.
    So, where’s my rock?

  • jeo


  • Dany

    It’s Nice….., The wolfs at the top form the ears and then the other 3 in the center form the face and nose….you have to look at it but not look in the same time to see it, do not focus!!….you won’t see anything.

  • My poor eyes count 9 small wolves to create 1 large wolf, this equals 10 wolves(?). ALSO one Bobcat and 1 rabbit. Great illusion……..:)

  • William

    I see ten wolves and a dolhpin…

  • Matt

    10 wolves plus another big one made out of all of them

  • Engywuck

    You are right. Like many illusions posted here before this picture was painted by Donald Rust.
    Love this one in particular! Mostly the eyes of hidden Faces and animals are quite unnatural painted and give the illusion away almost immediately. This one plays with the shadows very clever.
    Did you all spot the Lynx in the front?

  • I Carlos

    i see 8 wolves and 1 bobcat

  • Linda Walter

    I see 11 wolves. One is covering several of the heads we see….in the middle of the picture. Did I miss some around the wolves in the background?

  • Christine

    Looks like at least 8 wolves making up one huge middle of the picture wolf.

  • Woaaah :3 I love it! You se wolves running around a stream, and if you look carefully you see a wolf head made out of all the wolves and rocks! ^^

  • Riju

    You should try tineye.com – it’s a Reverse Image Search, you upload an image and tineye.com finds its original source.

  • joseph ts.

    I like this one,I found 8 wolves.

  • Brandie

    10 wolves and one lynx,
    easy to spot when a small icon on my dashboard…

  • brooks masterton

    8 wolves
    a mountain lion and
    of course the large wolf face.

  • Care Bear

    How many? Too many.

  • Rosalie Wanderscheid

    I wish the attachment were a little larger. It’s hard to pick out the subtleties and I think there may be more than what I’m seeing. I count 10 wolves for certain, including the large illusory wolf, as well as a lynx. Very neat!

  • SnowBerey

    i see 9 wolves and 1 hidden wolf so 10 wolves in all… and is that a lynx at the bottom right?

  • Pinyot

    I see 10 wolves chasing what looks like a bobcat to me.

  • Nixygirl

    Interesting. There seems to be 8 wolves (9 if you count the merged image wolf). And they seem to be chasing a wild cat of some description. Maybe it’s a cougar?

    As to the origins…no idea :)

  • Natasha

    Ahh yes I see it :) You can see it better if you zoom out. If you still can’t see it click the image and it’ll redirect you, then look at the little thumbnail, you’ll see it :)

  • some random guy you’l never meet

    my sis saw animals all joined together

  • Jim

    i got 11

  • ohmygosh

    i see 11

  • Stephen Gregorio

    i think its just cool that out of one thing they can make so many. a friend of mine has a shirt that has a wolf with 7 other wolves hidden around it. but this is neat trying to see how many wolves there are. i found 12 by the way

  • ZL123

    I saw it almost instantly, it’s just that I had to look around a bit. Nice! And can I have your e-mail? I don’t use Outlook. When I click ‘Submit Illusion’ it opens up Outlook. Please reply! Love this site. Good day.

  • Brandy Espy

    Poor bobcat =/

  • peter

    10 Wolfes and 1 lynx

  • Mark P


    Is this by Bev Doolittle? It seems like the kind of thing she’d make, but I don’t recognize it.

  • skippy

    I see 10 wolves, a lynx, a killer wale and a rabbit.

  • Dolphin

    I saw the wolf face instantly,and I counted 11 wolfs I’m sure should be there,and some that I think are just my imagination.

  • what to write today……

    i see 10 wolves and 1 linx…i think thats what it is

    • what to write today……

      but 1 of the wolves is the head

  • illusionist

    tricky tricky… bobcat…

  • Sean

    9 wolves chasing a lynx. also there is a wolf face formed by several wolves

  • Consuela

    I counted 9 wolves which make up one bigger one, chasing a bobcat… and until I read someone else’s comment didn’t see much else. But now I can see a rabbit, a horse, a fish and a deer. I’ll just bet there are more there than the eye can detect. I’d love to have this as a painting on my wall at home because there is so much to see.

  • Justin Martin

    Nine wolfs and a lynx. Plus one optical wolf.

  • Moo

    I like the site, but the kodak add has to go.. really annoying to have the whole page scroll itself down constantly…. please get a different advertiser

  • celticgirl

    20 wolves really? what might you be smokin’? I saw what someone said looked like a dolphin, but it’s not & I did not see arabbit at all.
    There are 9 wolves 1 composit wolf head chasing either a bobcat or Lynx.

    • Alicia

      Ha Ha, I agree with you. 20 wolves? dolphins? rabbits? killer whales?

      I see a total of 10 wolves (9 wolves make up one wolf head) chasing a cat.

  • Eddie

  • wozza

  • hi

  • Zeb

    this is not the best, the large wolf is not very clear, and the small wolves seem to be coming out of nowhere, and seeem to be sitting on nothing.

  • zedd

    I see 10 wolves, one big one,a linx and something that looks like a half fishy thing
