The photo was made by photographer Hemant Dabi. It may look like it’s a plain dry land with a shallow ditch. About 99% of all people can’t even see the leopard. Well, the big cat is lying there waiting for its prey.
No, it’s not a joke. Bella challenged her followers in the most intriguing way.
“PLEASE DON’T POST THE ANSWER so others can have a go. Thank you. :),” the girl added.
It didn’t work as too many people reposted the photo with a red circle around the animal. All you have to do is zoom the photo. The big cat is there, right? It blends perfectly with the brown background.
There were also followers who couldn’t find the leopard. Some of them were really frustrated.
“Someone please pm me the answer. I’m gonna go crazy if I stare at this dirt anymore,” one person wrote.
Leopards don’t change their appearance but they do find the right spot to match their coat. This leopard is all settled in the rocky terrain. The perfect camouflage, right? Some say it’s a jaguar. Well, the cat is not as muscular as jaguars and it doesn’t have the jaguar dot in its spots.
Gracious leopards thrive in Southern Africa and Asia. They are added to the list of critically endangered animals. Leopard skin is an expensive product, and it’s available on the black market. The number of leopards has seen an awful decline due to poaching, habitat loss and human pressures.
The 16-year-old encouraged wildlife lovers to join the Born Free Foundation and adopt a leopard in danger. The non-profit “works to protect leopards from the threats they face, both in the wild and in captivity, rescue individual leopards from suffering and exploitation, and provide them with lifetime care.”
