If you can spot the second “tiger” in this optical illusion, you’re in the top 1% – and there’s a helpful clue

IF you can see the hidden message in this picture then you are smarter than most.

The visual puzzle challenges you to find the “hidden tiger” in the jungle scene – and it’s harder than you think.


Can you find the “hidden tiger” in this picture?

That’s because the artwork features not one but two big cats, one much easier to identify than the other.

Next to the rather obvious striped predator in the center, instead of a second tiger, the image includes the text “the hidden tiger”.

It is this text that you must seek in order to solve the fiendishly difficult puzzle.

The optical illusion has been around for years and regularly pops up on sites like Reddit.

It’s also a popular test to send to friends via chat apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

Many people assume that the message is obscured by the picture’s busy scenery.

However, those looking for a clue should pay more attention to the tiger itself.

The text is actually hidden within the tiger’s fur, camouflaged as the creature’s iconic black stripes.

Take a closer look at its torso and hind leg and you’ll see the text meandering across the tiger’s body.

Optical illusions are often just a bit of fun, but they also have real value for scientists.

The brain puzzles help researchers shed light on the inner workings of the mind and how it reacts to its environment.

As early as 2017, scientists Kim Ransley and Alex O. Holcombe from the University of Sydney emphasized the importance of illusions in our understanding of the brain.

“Visual illusions show us that we have no direct access to reality,” the couple wrote in The Conversation.

“They can also provide a glimpse of the mental processing that provides our experience of the visible world.

“In fact, the processing in our brain is the basis for many illusions.

“Rather than providing information from our eyes in near-raw form like a camera would, the brain tries to determine what’s actually out there.

“When the information coming into the eye is ambiguous, the brain has to make educated guesses.”

It follows the release last week of a spooky illusion that makes viewers feel like they’re falling into a black hole.
