Can You Find The Snake In This Photo?
This proves how hard it is to spot snakes, so be careful when hiking or camping!
Summer is almost upon us, which means tons of outdoor fun is on its way. From hiking to camping trips to gardening, warm weather means that we get to enjoy Mother Nature in all its glory…but let’s not forget that Mother Nature means business!
Around 8,000 people are bit by poisonous snakes in the United States each year. It’s important to be educated about the snakes in your area, and to teach your kids to respect wildlife and leave snakes alone.
However, the problem with snakes is that they are experts at camouflage. They can hide in plain sight without passerby being any the wiser, meaning that they could nip an unlucky hiker or camper who gets too close. Think you have what it takes to spot one of these reptiles?
Here’s a fun challenge that will help you to see just how difficult it is to see a snake laying in wait. Take a look at the photo below and see how long it takes you to spot the snake.
Received this from a fellow HERper this morning. No caption needed, the task was implied: "can you spot the snake?" 🐍 pic.twitter.com/oVkjOm8ufy
