Every few months a viral pic sweeps across the internet, confusing the heck out of us. First it was #TheDress (yep, the black + blue or gold + white one, depending on how you saw it), followed by the similar color-mixing flip-flop sitch and even the shiny legs optical illusion. But now, the internet has collectively lost its mind over this new 鈥渋nvisible鈥 snake pic. Yes, it involves a snake, but don鈥檛 worry! You probably won鈥檛 be able to see it anyway.

In the pic taken in Texas by photographer Jerry Davis and posted by a PhD student in snake biology, @SssnakeySci (AKA Helen), we can clearly see a shot of the ground covered in dried leaves, twigs, and little green plants. That seems to be it. But apparently there鈥檚 a snake in the shot. Right there in front of our eyes. If you haven鈥檛 already done so (and even if you have) take a peek at the maddening picture below鈥

Can you spot the snake? If so, you鈥檙e basically an eagle-eyed superhero of sight. If you can鈥檛 track down the slithery critter anywhere in the pic, you鈥檙e certainly not alone.

There are some who are downright confused鈥

Some who are wildly wrong鈥

And some who are just being totally cheeky鈥

However, it *is* there. The shivers creeping down our spines prove it. If you zoom in and look for a brown body with maroon-ish circular stripes鈥

AAAHHH! There it is.

Maybe we were better off BEFORE we could see it.

Can you spot the snake (with or without help)? Let us know @BritandCo!
