It’s a deceptively simple brain teaser that has been sweeping the internet in recent months – Where’s Wally style puzzle with cartoon animals lurking among hordes of creatures.
That should be easy, but recent services have shown that people are unable to locate nasty creatures for anywhere between two seconds and 20 minutes.
In the latest Where’s Wally-style puzzle, a canny artist had hidden the face of a panda among a herd of elephants – and it proved surprisingly difficult to spot.
The illustration shows dozens of elephant heads in brown, yellow, grey and white. However, the black ink used to outline their eyes and ears means that the monochrome panda (second from right, seventh row from bottom) is just camouflage.
It was created by Matthew Merrill from Fresno, California, who is rapidly becoming famous for his tricky puzzles.
His last creation that swept the internet was a raccoon hidden among hundreds of dogs, with some wearing bows and others with long, shaggy hair, making them even harder to differentiate between.
Among the dogs is a panda that looks cheeky. But the black and white creature shares some similarities with its fellow hounds, including alert ears and a black nose.
With each breed represented some mutants, it was hard to spot the bear lurking among the giant dog pack.
But if you look closely, you’ll see it’s sandwiched in the middle right-hand side of the drawing.
This animal is less easy to spot than the corgis pictured with their giant ears or the white hound with pink bow-tie hair.
Once you’ve spotted the bear, you can then see how long it takes you to find the different varieties featured.
There’s a Hungarian Puli – the fearsome poodle owned by Mark Zuckerberg – as well as a Labrador, husky, shark, hound, Doberman, a schnauzer, spaniel, pointer, great Dane, chihuahua and poodle.
But the teaser proved to be a bit too easy for the web’s taste, with some commenters saying it took them just two seconds to find the panda.
One wrote: ‘In a moment,’ to describe how long it took her to find the animal.
This new visual game follows from a trailer posted two weeks ago by Mashable’s Watercooler, created by Max Knoblauch.
The drawing depicts several hamsters in different states of happiness, with some dressed up in bizarre costumes to throw off guesswork.
Among the hamster crowd is a potato – it gets along surprisingly well with its furry friends. Can you spot it?
There’s a bridal hamster, complete with a veil and smile, a rodent with a red clown nose, and one that even wears a Mets jersey.
But nestled behind two hamsters is a potato in the fourth row from the bottom and four spots from the right.
In another Knoblauch illustration, the reader is challenged to find Doc Brown, Christopher Lloyd’s character in Back to the Future, among dozens of Bernie Sanders.
But people might find this a little easier, as Doc Brown’s round glasses are a dead giveaway in the Sanders sea.
Hungarian animator Gergely Dudas is credited for the growing trend of sweet and silly illustrations going viral on the internet and asking people to find eggs, pandas, and owls.
Most recently, Dudas released an Easter-themed image that camouflages an egg among a cluster of bunnies.
The image was shared more than 7,000 times after Dudas posted it on his Facebook page last week.
As is typical in his drawings, the animator, who goes by Dudolf, threw some red string in to distract those trying to solve the puzzle.
One of the rabbits wore a top hat, and the other two held a paint could while the fourth sat and nibbled a carrot, keeping an eye on the real prize – the elusive egg.
The peach-coloured egg is actually on the left-hand edge of the drawing, two rows up from the bottom, hidden behind the white rabbit’s head.
Jan Josleyn wrote: ‘I’ve always been very good at these things but… I certainly can’t say it NOW. This one almost got the best of me! ‘
Meanwhile, Peggy Prawdzik praised the artist, saying: ‘Dudolf – You are the smile this world needs. Thanks for your post! ‘
Dudolf first gained notoriety last December with a drawing of a crowd of snowmen with a panda hiding among them that has been shared hundreds of thousands of times.
Another featuring cats and owls quickly followed the Where’s Waldo-style cartoon before some imitators added their contributions.
Reddit user Oneste stuck with the panda theme, but this time painted the fuzzy creature lurking among a group of Stormtroopers to mark the launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Among the Imperial troops consisting of Stormtroopers, Speeder Bikers riders and Snowtroopers was a single panda in the same black and white color as the other figures.
Then, in February of this year, to mark the Oscars season, illustrator Michael Rogalski hid a golden statuette in a group of C3PO droids from the Star Wars movies and sent the Internet mad looking for it.
