This Viral Image of a Camouflaged Snake Is Driving the Internet Crazy

Looking for a way to waste 20 minutes of your day?

A herpetologist and Ph.D student named Helen Plyar, who goes by @SssnakeySci, posted this image on Twitter, with the caption, “Received this from a fellow HERper this morning. No caption needed, the task was implied: ‘can you spot the snake?’”

And, yes, this is not a trick question or sort of riddle. There’s actually a snake hiding somewhere in those leaves.

Sure, it’s all good fun, but it’s a little unsettling to think that a venomous predator could be hiding in plain sight in real life, waiting to pounce at any moment.

If you get too frustrated trying to find it for yourself, Helen was kind enough to highlight it for anyone who gives up.

Happy snake hunting, everyone.
